Through the ice

The noise varied, slamming doors, screaming babies, loud footsteps. Some very wierd stuff we all got a bit freaked out at times.

I wonder how do they navigate a submarine when it’s submerged?
How can they get a satellite signal when under the ice or even when dived deep?

They do proper navigation. Serious tide tables, accurate logs, and a stopwatch.

There is no truth whatsoever to the rumour that the boomers sit on the bottom where they go out of sight for six months, with the crew sneaking off at night to go to the pub.

Sorry about the delay in replying mate. We only surfaced briefly but I got to spend 10 mins on the bridge, now at least when my wife says the weathers like the North Pole I can say “nah nothing like itâ€. Winds her up no end, He He. Highlights of the trip include the TS’s ever increasingly complex bottle and bathy tube condensation catchers. A yank Ice Pilot called, gen dit, Randy Ray who exhibited some scary homosexual tendencies. Professor Wadhams who was at least 90 years old and had bad taste in pyjamas, shaking him was scary you never knew if he’d expired in his sleep!
