British Nuke Sub Watchmen Caught Drinking, Napping Before Red Sea Crash

A watchman was caught drinking beer and falling asleep on a nuclear submarine which crashed in the Red Sea last week, Sky News reported Tuesday.

The crewman has been placed on leave from the HMS Superb while a Ministry of Defense investigation is carried out.

His conduct came to light after cellphone footage obtained by The Sun newspaper showed a commander warning crew about safety breaches that he said were "unacceptable" and irresponsible.

This is disconcerting. I wonder if it was his fault that the sub crashed?

They carry beer on a Nuclear submarine??? Thats crazy!!

I always thought that these submariners were supposed to be screened for sobriety and other mental conditions.

All Royal Navy warships carry alchohol and have done for centuries. Good grief, it wasnt that long ago that they stopped issueing Navy Rum.

There is a difference to having a drink to being drunk. Unlike in civvy street, the Royal Navy can charge you with the offence of being drunk, whereas in civvy street it is drunk and disorderly.
