"Periscope Down" probably comes closest to portraying modern life on a sub. :P
was just 26 years old! Folks grew up fast in the first half of the 20th.
'Midway' caught my attention by pointedly showing the skipper and another hand smoking while submerged! Holy moly.
Have no idea what the policy is now, but? Smoking was permitted (albeit, only in designated areas) on the boats I served on.
Me? I was very much a NON-smoker! When I was a junior EM on my first sub? It really bugged me, having to clean the electrostatic precipitators that were just covered in tobacco smoke.
