2. "SNOWING in the Royal Navy [RN] - Once again!" "Three sailors aboard a Royal Navy submarine HMS VENGEANCE carrying 16 nuclear missiles have been caught taking cocaine, 2d June."
See previous blog entry RN sailors manning a Trident missile firing nuclear submarine their use of illegal drugs unmasked.
