Hi Janner, you on the Narwhal? Wow, the memories! My first boat, took her out of Barrow in 1957. Did the
work-up trials, sound trials, torpedo trials etc etc.

Engine room - spent a lot of time on the main motor switchboards entering and leaving harbour!

Filming "Look at Life" sitting on MY radar aerial! We dived with this guy up there and the below decks film crew tried to get me to drop the mast!!

Interesting bit of video, thanks.

Two things resonate from that:
1. How clean and well maintained everything is, even the hull of the depot ship
2. The narrator tells us that the UK can only muster "about fifty submarines"! How things have changed on that score...
