Did a roof for a WW2 submariner 2 years ago, A great old guy, Told me All his Sub stories, They held the record for longest torpedo shot, Said they hunkered down just like the movie DAS BOOT.

Unfortunately he has cancer real bad with just a short time to go, I have to repair some shingles this week for him, He is a real Hero.

Sinking ships wasn't their only job.

My cruiser did anti-sub patrol work off her home (away from home) base (Fremantle)

I remember going through one of these subs when it was still on active service with the US Navy. It was doing a goodwill visit to Sydney..... at a guess in the very early 60's.
