Should I glue Belfast sink to base?

I am fitting a double belfast sink and it sits on top of a belfast sink unit with a flat top (minus the holes I have made for the two wastes).

When the worktop is fitted it will be silicon sealed to the worktop where that overhangs by 10mm on back and sides, but should I be seating it in a bed of glue?

Thanks, I'll go for that.

Am I right in thinking that the top of it needs to be about 2mm below the bottom of the worktop to get a decent layer of silicon to flow in the gap?
