Submarine Sea Stories | Ever wonder what it's like to spend the cold war under water with 100 other guys?

David grew up on the West Coast of Scotland and was surrounded by water. His Mom said he always talked about joining the Navy, but he doesn’t remember why. He joined as an Artificer Apprentice in 1983. This position was created back in the Victorian Era as the amount of technical work required on ships increased.

David learned the book information and then he learned from a salty guy that he didn’t know it all.

From then on, David’s real education began.

David did some “sneaky” patrols and eventually became an officer, commanding the very place where he learned to be an artificer.

Pretty cool.
