You beat me to it. I must have been reading it as you were posting.
I have to say, in 18 years I've never known anyone have to be "grabbed and sedated until they can be landed ashore". I'm not too sure about the line, "Some say lack of exercise means submariners tend to put on weight", either. Those 'some' might just be the guys who can't be bothered to do any phys.

You have gotta love the final line...

So what does a submariner crave most during the long stretches away at sea?

"What any young red-blooded males crave," Mr McMaster explains, without elaborating.

I know my memories not what it was, but I'm sure we had toilets on diesel boats.

The kindest thing to say about the article is that it is poorly written. Still they say any publicity is good

For all wannabe submariners - a thought.

There are no flowers on a submarne's grave, no tributes last long on the oceans wave. The only salute is a seagull as it sweeps, and the tears that drop when a loved one weeps. Taken from a tribute to submariners...

IIRC. this is a old German Naval song - mind you, with their loss of U-boat crews, tis more than approptiate.
