I have an idea , because the Submarine service is such a small world , I am sure many of you may know each other . So why not post your previous boats with dates . This way we can ask about oppos etc etc . I left the Submarine service 12 years ago but i am sure many of my old shipmates are still in the ''mob'' . HM/SM REPULSE (port) 1991-93
HM/SM TIRELESS 1993/94
Tireless was my last boat before the big outside world took me in and fed me breakfast.

Deeps, what, who, when, where etc.I see by the little bit of info you give that you may have been a CR watchkeeper or somesuch.


Me Bungy or Paj......Narrowband acoustic analysis expert par excellance, or just a sonar operator, (all depends which Tom Clancy novel you're scoffing at I 'spose) and a really good egg. I look like an egg as well, no hair. I shaved it off before it all fell out, all that bloody radiation and stress.

Now a country yokel again and do I ever miss the sea!
