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.

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. )
