That reminds me of an incident during an Adriatic patrol in the early nineties.
Port and Stbd launchers loaded with warshot, inhibiting 1 side to carry out SOCs daily, port system on even days and stbd on odds. Well the old PO Tas ape only got his days mixed up and pressed fire on the side that was still connected. Out went the live stingray! well it would have if the tube hadn't gone defective. Lucky really as the CVS was about half a mile on that beam!
Poor Chief tiff maintainer got the bollocking because it didn't leave the tube!
