Chas Cooke spent thirteen years serving in the three main types of submarine in the Royal Navy's arsenal and in this book he tells of the camaraderie of those who serve together beneath the waves, of the strains such a life places on the submariner's family and the raucous and sometimes bizarre behaviour of those who spend their lives in a. steel tube many hundreds of feet under the water.

A true voice of submarining in the 70s and 80s, ex POTI Chas Cooke tells the story of his life in the Royal Navy but concentrates his tale on life in submarines (boats). He writes with verve and relish, including details of ‘how it was’ that some might perhaps leave unsaid when describing their underwater experiences. A really enjoyable read.

So, there are so many answers for the question why should we read books?. but you have to find your reason to read books. Sourav Yadav, Co Founder at Basics Eduventures (2017-present). I’m sure you’ve heard it before you should read books and maybe you’re thinking that it’s a bit boring or even a waste of time. I don’t blame you because I was the same way until I accidentally read my first book. Before you read any further, let me tell you that the only way you can really see how useful books can be is by actually reading a couple of them.

Britain was a peripheral province of the Roman Empire and Roman historians mentioned Britain only in passing (except for the years of its conquest. Its main interaction with the rest of the empire was through trade. Britain had mines and exported iron, silver, led and tin (tin was important for th. roduction of bronze which is a copper and tin alloy). Why should he stay? His invasion was only a token gesture to prove that he had military credentials to the people back home.

The men of the Royal Navy Submarine Service are a breed apart. Often classified as slightly mad, working beneath the waves, enclosed in a steel tube, they are a mystery to many. This book proves the psychiatrists wrong; they are not slightly mad, they are totally insane. The bizarre antics of the crews of Her Majesty's submarines are laid bare in this hilarious and often ribald tale of those who protect their nation from below the waves, allowing us a unique insight into a way of life only a few are privileged to have known.

I am a keen reader of submarine memoirs and I can safely say that this is one of the best. It is an often hilarious and always accurate description of submariners at work and play in the 1970s and 80s. Be warned though, it is not for the squeamish, the faint of heart or the easily offended - political correctness has (thankfully) never been a part of a submariners makeup. Many of the incidents may seem impossibly exaggerated but as a former Royal Australian Navy submariner I have seen many similar incidents and can vouch for their accuracy. If anything the author has left out many of the really good bits.

This book had me in stitches. It is a trip down memory lane for former submariners and an honest illustration of submarine life and of submariners themselves for the lay reader.

Overall a good synopsis of life in the R.N. Author seemed to get his early years a little scrambled but the life described was pretty much as it was. I was in the stoker branch and had a similar lifeline.
The memories are pretty much the same, just a few years earlier, good read.

The navy I remember from the early 80's. Great story telling and a fair reflection of the Cold War RN

A humerous and entertaining journey into a subject I had previously no knowledge of, I loved it and learned a lot
