Another nuclear sub in Gibraltar

A second nuclear submarine has stopped off in Gibraltar in less than one week, the latest being HMS Trenchant. Last week it was HMS Talent.

The subs tend to stop over in Gibraltar to pick up supplies and for a bit of r and r for the crew and 50 nuclear subs have visited Gibraltar since the infamous ‘Tireless’ incident in May 2001.

Following the ‘Tireless’ incident, when the damaged sub spent four months in Gibraltar undergoing repairs, the United Kingdom undertook not to send damaged craft to the Rock.
