I’ve hidden a bit of my personal history from you…


Most of you readers are fairly familiar with my service as an Infantryman.

But have I shared with you my brief service as a submariner?

    Made me look. At least it wasn’t on a Small World.

    I was briefly on a submarine – in uniform! When I was in the Scouts ;-) we had a field trip to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, still in operation back then. One of the features of the tour was a visit to a submarine. (I remember it as being the Nautilus but not certain about that.) Even as a kid it seemed to me to be very cramped!

  3. Never been on a “pig boat” at all. Wouldn’t mind a tour, but I’m like the Soviet Sailor in “Red Storm Rising.” I like broad horizons and the ability to see them.

    I toured an unmodified Balao-class submarine at Mare Island as a child. Even then, I was thinking the boat was a tad confining.
