Right, I think we should detonate it here. Looking around, it can only improve things.

We're doing everything we can to get him out, Mrs Miggins. But when he told you he'd found a toy submarine, didn't you think it might be a good idea to check it for yourself before letting him play with it?

The Navy first became aware of "issues" with the Submarine Branch, when a photograph appeared seeming to show a torpedo being given a last minute medical and a "goodbye hug", prior to being "released back into the wild".
