Proper job-toilet sinks sub

" Image the stigma of this for the rest of your career, the failed shitehouse engineer! ) Problems in the small working compartment.
Loads of folks have lost submarines over here as a result of valves installed incorrectly.
Human error again!

I don't think apon reflection that would emit you to this particulate club.
Bit, how can I put it, a bit weak perhaps?
This was a blowback with a difference, a really " now I'm really in the sh one t club " in more ways than one.
Now you know what was behind that sight glass depicted in my " Proper Job " write up.
" Secrets of the site glass / confessions of a sight glass."
Just to reassure you there was no one behind the sight glass when the wreck was discovered some 70 years later.
So no constipation jobby back there then.
Remembering The Good Old days, when Chiefs stood watches and all Torque settings were F.T.
