In the Suez crisis, I was first with the NBU and No ASRM and then when the pull out started was on HMS Forth, which I think was a submarine depot ship and at Suez hosted NOIC Port Said.

Forth was refitted at Chatham in the late 1960's to support nuclear subs and then went to the Far East and ended up at Devonport before being scrapped.

Spent a whole week in the fore ends of a sub.

You may well have come across Berry Head and Rame Head.

That's a floating dock and at least one was at Rothesay picture of sub in dock. The one now at Faslane/Coulport is fairly recent.

The depot ship was probably HMS Adamant. Floating docks generally look alike. The ones that you would have seen at Rothesay were scrapped many years ago. The one at Faslane is specifically for nuclear subs.
