On board the Royal Navy's first Polaris submarine HMS RESOLUTION. A Leading Rate purchases extra supplies (extra beer or cigarette ration or luxury goods such as chocolate) from the submarine's store - known as the 'Canteen'. On many large surface ships these canteen stores were run by NAAFI personnel, civilians who wore naval uniform. On nuclear submarines however this was done by naval stores personnel under the guidance of a Logistics Officer or a designated officer or non-commissioned officer who acts as business manager.
