I was stationed in Holy Loch too
11 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was stationed in Holy Loch on the USS Hunley in 1982 and can confirm there was a detachment of Marines on the ship to guard the nukes. I haven't seen the movie but I really would like to. Even more I should go back there to visit. It was relentlessly cold and drizzly and all my things molded while I lived there. There was rarely central heating in the dwellings, and I had a tiny coal fireplace and a pile of coal behind my "flat". They wanted the Americans gone but many of us have a better understanding of Scottish life and culture for having been stationed there. My question now is, how can I get my hands on a copy of this movie?
