HMS Astute narrowly missed running aground off the Isle of Skye, however the Bridge to Skye wasn't on the latest edition of the Admiralty Charts in use

"... the candidate demonstrated the strength of character necessary to pass the COQC, regrettably he showed no ability to recognize a loss of situational awareness and correct accordingly..."

Finally, photographic proof 406's POSSUB 3 of 11 May 1982 was real.

The Commander was further chastened by the evidence that the sub was upside down while transiting the SCS by DR.

Well having listened to the voice recorder, when the lighthouse said "your move!", you should have moved.

Yeh, I can see the problem here. You camouflaged the periscope, and the ship didn't see you.

OK calling time.

Honorable discharge to DanGerous for
See that f****** ships cat....
But the one that made me laugh hardest was Buster with:

Don’t tell me. You found HMAS Melbourne?
For those too young to remember, the Oz flagship of the 60s, the aircraft -sort-of-carrier Melbourne, had a tragic accident with HMAS Voyager, a destroyer, which sank with the loss of many lives. Melbourne was patched up, the captains were changed, and it later took out USS Evans in a similar manner.
Moral of the story, you don't brake-check an aircraft carrier.

All yours, Buster.

Both cases, public word was that the boats were damaged around the bow, and for the Gato, she got some damage around the "reactor plating area". They don't fit the damage of your picture, but that sure looks like US of A periscope camo, and the configuration looks very much like a Permit boat, needing some bondo fill.

Who is that?

Got too close to Bondi Beach to look at the topless girls, and picked up the shark nets.
