Submariners' News The Peculiar Press of the Underwater Mariner

by Keith Hall

Submariners' News The Peculiar Press of the Underwater Mariner Synopsis

For many years submariners produced `local newspapers', reporting from the deep with a unique take on their unusual lifestyle. Held in much affection by submarine crews, they enjoyed a long period of popularity from the 1970s-1990s for their irreverent and decidedly un-PC approach to underwater living. In this entertaining book, author Keith Hall examines the development of this strange branch of `underwater journalism', collating the articles and anecdotes, jokes cartoons and stories that have been published over the years to brighten up the lives of submariners far from home, providing an insight into the bizarre self-contained world of the submariner.
