Anyone recognise this?
« on: June 03, 2014, 11:16:47 AM »

The late Bernie Wood bought this for me about twenty five years ago from the Sub Museum shop at Gosport...I've never played it yet. I can't seem to find out anything about it...any information would be gratefully received.

it sort of reminds me about the John Winton Books (we saw the sea etc) with the Bodger as one of the characters. I am sure my dad has said there were other similar books about navy life, this must be one.

Richard Compton Hall does seem to be an expert in submarines according to this - he has written several books on the subject.
