SSN Jimmy Carter flying Jolly Roger

Apparently not the first time this has happened either. I haven’t served on subs but no CO I ever met would have allowed this; at least on Surface warfare vessels. Anyone with input or experience with this?

More info and explanation here:


We fly the Jolly Roger all the time for crossing the line as well in the surface Navy.

Thanks for the replies. I had forgotten the line crossings. I was mostly talking about entering and leaving port. I remember some bawdy playing with signal flags in my Domer days during port calls but not with USN. Thanks again.

Good for them!
