I enjoyed the program and if you did you may enjoy this walk around and through a real U boat museum piece in Germany. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbblBA4oqTY

If your ever visiting Gothenburg there is a ship museum in the harbour that has a German U Boat open to visitors. It’s amazing and horrifying to see and try and imagine what it must have been like to be in one of these. Claustrophobia doesn’t bother me and in later life I scuba dived many a wreck but to live in such confined conditions is beyond me. Well worth a visit if your ever near. (Just go to bottom of the Avenue and it’s close to the Opera House).

Thanks for that Colin, when we get up there we will make sure to give her a visit.
I just know I wouldn't cope in one of these things, I don't suffer in confined spaces but the thought of all that water above me just would not work.

HMS Alliance, the only remaining WW2 submarine is open to visitors at the Submarine Museum at Gosport, on the south Coast.
It is sobering to think that the crew lived, worked and died in the small tube and when the diesels were running the noise level was terrible.

Incidentally I was trying to find out about Sir John Harvey Jones (he of BBC Troubleshooter fame who diagnosed Morgan's issues back in the days of long waiting lists) submarine service but have come up blank. Anyone come across any references?

When the boats sailed they would be crammed full of provisions every space would have something dried salted meats hanging in the passageways, etc. with exotic smells. In the 70s the Diesel Electric Hunter Killers were a cramped environment too, we were STR (surplus too requirement) and housed in the aft Torpedo Room with our equipment, hammocks slung between the Fish; luckily we were never on board for more than a few weeks. You could always spot the Subbies when they came ashore after a deployment, today's boats are a much better environment but still a strange world to landlubbers.

A little bit of local news for you Bruce - progress indeed.

The skipper on Conquerer at Belgrano time is the brother of a good local friend of ours so we have met him and these guys are like fast jet pilots they are the best in class and very nice people that operate way above the normal intellect level.

I agree, way above me but that's not unusual. My school chum was a Commander in Subs serving 40 years in boats your friends brother will know him Tom Herman, he is now the Submarine Flotilla Secretary
