This is a great story, broken by @ForcesNews and @jameswharton Whether accidental or deliberate, this is significant, particularly when you consider why the Russian sub is there in the first place. And T23s still rock. bit.ly/34gIeDp

A massive thank you to @mike_sooty for writing Typhoon! After 20 years working on her avionics I finally feel like I've contributed to the world!! Humbled to see Candles get a mention too - suicide in the armed forces needs more attention. If you're an #avgeek get it read! 10/10

I went to see my grand-dog ‘Yoda’ today, as his Dad is away in Antarctica. He was so pleased with some male company he wanted to come home with me. #lapphund

Saving the best till last @hmsprotector ? Merry Christmas to all deployed units; particularly those employed on CASD and TAPS. They are the unsung heroes, doing a difficult job in less than ideal conditions.
THREAD: RN vessels deployed this Christmas. Likely 2 Vanguard class submarines at sea (deterrent patrol hand over) and at least one Astute boat (Photo: nato.news 23/12/21 )

Heroes all, to go out on a night like that for the sake of others. Some forget, but this selfless sacrifice is written into the DNA of the RNLI. Despite the technology of modern lifeboats, that selfless commitment remains today.
Day 641. Service not self 🧡 In memory of the crew of @RNLI @penleelifeboat Solomon Browne and those from the Union Star who tragically lost their lives 40 years ago Gone but not forgotten 💙

"Books in all their variety offer human intellect the means whereby civilisation may be carried triumphantly forward". Churchill I don't know about carrying civilisation forward. But you can escape a conversation with the mother-in-law at Mach 1.8 this Christmas🚀🎄 #TyphoonBook

2/6 In 2019 I was in a bicycle accident and needed hospital treatment. The hospital had an ‘opt out’ testing policy and this is how I received my diagnosis. My world spiralled. I felt isolated and alone. I was serving in the @RoyalNavy and had just been told I was HIV positive.
