Our original website included a Photo of the Day feature. On Wednesday, March 11, 2015, the Photo of the Day was a picture of a torpedo being loaded aboard HMCS OJIBWA.
Alongside in the background was a large ship. This took former submariner Jim 'Lucky' Gordon on a trip down memory lane. Before you follow him there, it will help to know that a 'target' to a submariner is any surface ship and a 'skimmer' is someone who sails on a surface ship.
Reminds me of...
Of an Evening
The projector was placed on the casing and we would sit on the casing dangling our legs over the side or sit down on the tank top with our backs against the side of the casing. If the Officer of the day was in a good mood, we were permitted to have a couple beer - or more if we used a little ingenuity. Duty watches were big back then. We could have 15 plus members duty.
It is Unwise go Give a Submariner Cause
A Mutual Understanding was Reached
Skimmers vs. Submariners? No contest!
Mind yer bubble.
