The British nuclear submarine dubbed “HMS Sex and Cocaine” by the tabloids is in trouble again. An officer responsible for its nuclear missiles reportedly showed up for duty drunk during a port call in the US.
The latest embarrassing incident happened during HMS Vigilant’s stay at the US Navy’s Kings Bay base in Georgia, according to the Sun. Lt. Commander Len Louw came in for his shift just as the crew was preparing to unload Trident II missiles – the primary armament of the submarine. As the weapons engineering officer, Louw was supposed to be in charge of the nuclear weapons.
