How to bake a potato

First, closely monitor your nuclear reactor.

Each night, deep in the bowels of the sub, the engineers bake potatoes by nestling them next to machinery as they closely monitor the nuclear reactor.

Crew member Graham “Scouse” Finley, 30, said: “I don’t know what the right temperature is for spuds but if we put them on at 10.30pm they’re perfect three hours later, crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle.

“I ­personally like mine with a bit of butter, cheese and curry paste, though some put all sorts on theirs.” The Liverpudlian LET – Leading Engineering Technician – added: “You could probably do other food like trout but you wouldn’t want to stink out the engine room.”

It's cooking with Robert Heinlein as HMS Triumph returns from station off the coast of Libya. Their Jolly Roger features prominently.
