Letters of last resort

"The letters of last resort are four hand-written letters by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom that contain orders to the commanders of four British ballistic missile submarines on what to do in the case that an enemy nuclear strike has destroyed the UK and killed the Prime Minister."

 

"The letters are stored in each submarine and are destroyed unopened when a new Prime Minister takes office."

(kind of a bummer that they are destroyed, YEARS later these would have made for an extremely interesting read)

 

Here is a radio program from the UK "The Human Button":

Pretty interesting if you ask me, I like this kind of stuff.
