  2. Shame the Submarine Museum wasn't given it, maybe they'll bid?
  3. What do the handcuffs signify? Taking of prisoners?
  4. That's one I haven't seen before, maybe it's to do with when the boat pretended to a yank?

    There could be some interest from the USA bearing in mind that she landed General Mark Clark. Its rumoured that they framed the shit house seat and had a plaque on it reading "General Mark Clark Shat here"
  6. There is a monument to Seraph in the States commemorating the time she was called USS Seraph and had an American skipper (pretending to be the skipper) from when she picked up the French General Giraud and took him to Algiers. Giraud hated the British and insisted on an American submarine but none were available so Seraph pretended to be a Yank to keep him happy.

    Evidently it's the only memorial in the States that flies the White Ensign.

  7. The white ensign is also flown at the British War Cemeteries on the islands of Ocracoke and Hatteras off the coast of North Carolina near where the anti-submarine trawler HMT Bedfordshire was sunk with the loss of all 37 hands in May 1942:
