    Just to beef up the British submarine section, here are some more photos I saved while doing the Thetis/Thunderbolt thread. They were quite well equipped but suffered badly.

    1. Unsure, an O or a P class sub:

    2. A U class sub:

    3. A U class riding very high in the water, possibly at launch or after a refit:

    At the outbreak of War Britain had 58 submarines available, 47 of which could have been considered as up to date. Around 270 British submarines were eventually deployed. 73 British submarines were lost in the war, reflecting the difficulties of their operating areas and targets: the well protected German shipping around Northern Europe, the clear and shallow Mediterranean, Malacca Straits and Indian Ocean. A total of over 2000 men. SOURCE
