Let's go hug a veteran Submarine

Today's wacky activity involved donning scuba gear and diving on the A1 Submarine in Bracklesham Bay. This is a protected wreck and we need a licence just to look at her. Built in 1902 at Barrow in Furness she sank twice in her short career. The first time with all crew lost. Second time she was empty. No underwater photographs were allowed as we were not licenced to take any. Then a visit to the Submarine Museum Gosport - nice Portugese cheese tart in the canteen! Thanks to the lovely Sarah at the NAS for organising this day so well.
