Five officers on nuclear submarine threaten to quit over alleged love affairs among crew

Quote:
Five officers on a nuclear submarine threatened to quit over love affairs among crew, it has emerged.

The second-in-command of HMS Vigilant, one of four Vanguard subs carrying the UK’s Trident missiles, has also been stripped of his duties amid claims of an inappropriate relationship, after the captain was removed.

Slightly off topic (but not much) this reminded of the story of an old friend of mine called Apples who served on a Swiftsure boat back in the 90s.

He managed to get on Blind Date (a UK TV programme, google it if you don't know the format) and got picked by the lovely young lady. Once abroad on holiday (and on camera) he started ripping the piss out of it for sh*t and giggles. Told her how he loved snogging other guys and that was how they coped alone for long times at sea.

He was on leave when it aired on TV but needless to say he got to meet a lot of senior officers for a lot of one-way chats when he got back to work

Well like I said, glad it was a female ... the other side of the coin could be much worse.

Quote:
In the 1950s and 1960s, behavioural therapy was used to try to "cure" gay men. Men convicted of homosexual acts were routinely given electric shock treatment, hallucinogenic drugs and subjected to brainwashing techniques.

The most common form of treatment was aversion therapy, of the kind seen in Stanley Kubrick's film A Clockwork Orange.

Those who volunteered for such treatments - often in preference to jail terms - were shown pictures of naked men and given a series electric shocks or drugs to make them vomit.

When they could stand it no longer, they were shown pictures of naked women, or films of nudist colonies, as a relief from the pain - or, in some cases, taken out on "dates" with young nurses.

Default Vigilant in the wars again!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41786237

Nine submariners on HMS Vigilant dismissed for drugs!


Through a heavy mist of disappointment I can say that on my (sim) ships [SH3] drug abuse is not tolerated! Except of course amphetamines which are available 24/7 from the Medical Officer.

And no "inappropriate" male female "relationships" either. No sir, just good clean boy on boy fun!

It all makes a bit of a mockery of the boat's name, "Vigilant".

" ... In port, most ships' captains allowed prostitutes onboard, and the men were in any case already issued with large quantities of drink - the standard allowance was a gallon of beer a man per day. If beer was not available, then a pint of wine or half a pint of spirits could be substituted. ..."

Sailors, rum and prostitutes coming aboard warships in harbours.
Who would have thunk..


edit: probably merge with the main Vigilant thread (?)
