My class have our end of course presentation soon, would anyone be able to provide me any factual information or provide sources where I can draw information from.

Anything on submariner stokers, or stokers in general?

Cheers shippers.

Well, you can call me boring, but just for a wheze, I Googled 'submarine stokers in ww2'

guess what............

Believe it or not.. We've been doing that as well. But as a given this site is full of people in the mob and ex mob so I thought I'd ask the question.

One of the great tragedies (pre WW2) was the loss of HMS Thetis (below). Only three men survived. Last man out was Leading Stoker Arnold:


This is about one of the most factually accurate books, I believe:
HMS Thetis

Another good one to look into is the sinking of HMS Artemis, alongside at HMS Dolphin (1956) whilst preparing to take-on fuel.

That's great! Thanks for that Ninja, definitely going to be included.
 
The duty chief Dave Guest & GM if you please* on board Artemis lives in my Village.Nice Man.

*GM citation here - https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/45793/supplement/11631

One of the very few pieces of good news arising from that incident.

(Another of those few good things was the generosity of the Boat's S/Rs as they invited the Dolphin VM S/Rs small coterie to help them to drink their way through their ARTEMIS Mess Funds. With Dave generally presiding 'twas churlish to refuse such generosity, hic. )
