Vigilant back in the news

There is perhaps a danger, that in the armed forces, where morale is low for all the reasons stated here and on other forums, a positive drug test becomes an easy way out, and in a society where there is perhaps not the same intolerance level, the shame of discharge may not be as great a deterrent. All a bit worrying on so many fronts.

The DT article cited also names the XO and his bird, names I haven't seen outed in the public media before.

To put Vigilant in a better light, 'Senior officers took a deep interest in engineering matters'.
 
Vigilant - the gift that keeps on giving, from an embarrassment POV that is!

Sex in a swimming pool with a prostitute - perfectly acceptable imho, unless it also involves Colombian marching powder, then clearly it would be unacceptable!

I remember a drugs lecture back in the 90's the guy giving said when we in the audience joined late 60's - 70's the only problem was mainly was drinking, but back then the problem was the civy social climate was changing and doing recreational drugs was becoming common place along with glue sniffing etc. Teenagers were joining as experienced substance abusers, these 9 may be just the tip of the iceberg, were some will risk it at weekends and on leave. I remember going to stay in Burnley in the late 70's in a house full of teens/20's they thought I was some kind of stick in the mud because I would not try anything I did not know, smoke, drink etc. So the temptation has been around awhile, it is up to the individuals character, or lack of character if they choose to break the strict rule, No Drugs unless prescribed or brought from a pharmacy with no abuse intended. Rant over dcik heads.

In another life I was a train driver and subject to random drugs and alcohol checks. Had I breached this I would no doubt have been fired or at least taken off driving duties and put under observation in another position. The RN have long had an anti-drugs policy and these chaps knew the risks. :cool:

Being lined up for drug taking when they can find a new No1 and Captain to sort them out. Another decided all this nuclear business was getting him down so he booked himself a flight to go and see his girl friend. Perhaps there was no one around of authority to ask. At least the prostitute in the swimming bath was acceptable. The way things are going they'll be taking them aboard and cracking one or two off in the Captains en-suite.

So sad to see the S/M Service besmirched with this Boat's recent shenanigans. :(

My sympathy is strictly restricted to all the innocent OH's & families of those involved,

and for those others affected by 'Pier Head Jumps' to replace the miscreants.

Completely unacceptible behaviour in a disciplined service.

I’m also concerned about how this keeps making it to the press so quickly.
