Sundodgers United


War Hero
We didn't have DOLPHINS or year no 3 or what ever it is -- just a couple of months on A boat and in less than 6 months I was on watch in the motor room on my own --- we all seemed competent? There is a good biography >>Admiral Mendelhall __ THE STALKING of JAPAN .He started a young ensign as war started and he became the 2nd command and "walked the Boat" with people who had done the year study or whatever -- gives quite lot of other detail of how they operated their boats in WW2 even how much fuel used each trip etc At the end of the war he is in Australia and is seated in military passenger plane flying city to city in Australia , when he realised the bloke next to him hadn't moved ,let alone speak , when they landed ,he was found be dead !!
Could have been worse. He could have snored for the whole flight.
