The Oberon class HMAS Ovens is on display in Fremantle for a walk thru / crawl thru tour.
That tour clears up any images of a group meeting around the periscope(s), unless it is
a meeting of anorexic dwarfs.
I could heft my bulk through the pressure hatches. But only just.
Cozy. Very cozy.

I sat next to a Kiwi on a CX flight two weeks ago who had been a cook on subs .
He mentioned how only he, as the cook, and the Captain were allowed daily showers; very brief ones though.
