This photograph of Flt Lt Crewe (OC 121 Squadron) was taken during a visit to the submarine museum in Portsmouth.This, the first 'Caption Competition' hosted by aircadetonline attracted some fantastic entries. In fact when it came to getting the Squadron staff to judge the competition it was difficult to agree upon a winner. Eventually this caption that was submitted by somebody who withheld their name managed to score the most points.

"wing commander sighted load torpedo tubes 1-4 and fire at mills"

I can't imagine why they wouldn't want to have their name publicised. I'm sure that Wing Commander Mills would love to personally congratulate the budding comedian responsible for such an entry.
I must point out before the subsequent Courts-martial, that I didn't vote for this entry, honest!

It's at times like this that the airforce officer has comfort in the fact that the Navy say that Submarines are safer than aircraft. The proof is in the fact that there are more aircraft in the water than submarines in the air!
