They're not life jackets Dougie, those are pouches to hold gold bars as us Navy guys were so highly paid ;)

No its a strange do that all around Dougie.
We had one A/B Gunner onboard and he was incharge
of the care and maintenance of the firearms onboard.
The ammo was stored in the wardroom and the weapons
under the foreends space. Sure blokes had disagreements
amongst theirselves but nothing like what was on the
Astute. Something strange there, but no doubt it will all
come out in the future. Also there were no drugs in my
day, and they have an effect with alcohol now days.

They introduced the carrying of guns by the the QM & Bosun's mate on the gangways of ships in my last couple of years in the mob. Everyone I talked to about it agree, it was a dumb idea as more people would be wounded and killed by matelots with guns than any terrorist could ever manage.
I recall some accidents in the couple of years before I retired, but nothing like happened on the sub in Southhampton.

Thinking about it Dougie, they were all volunteers in my
day and you went through very rigorous training at
Dolphin which sorted any "oddballs" out.
Also the escape training got rid of quite a few who couldn't
hack it. The pressure tests where you were subject to
high pressure of 90lbs as opposed to the normal pressure
of 14.5lbs used to sort a few out with burst eardrums
and the likes. On the whole when I think about it, we were
more disciplined then, and any oddballs were soon
seperated from the crew.
After all myself and three others all killicks were sent back
to general service and DQ's for celebrating our draft to
Chatham to pick up the Ocelot. Much wounded pride
amongst the local R.P.O.s
I have entered it previously about that run ashore some
where.
