Life Under The Sea

Wed 10th February 2021 at 6.30 pm - 8.00 pm

Hugh Porter relived some of his experiences as a submariner

 

Guest speaker this week was Hugh Porter from the Barrow Branch of the Submariners Association.

Hugh gave a fascinating insight to life on board a submarine, starting with his first tour on HMS Spartan, built at Barrow in 1978.

Hugh explained about hot-bunking and how 27 crew shared a single toilet!

A great talk with lots of humour.
