    Here's something that caught my eye in my newsfeed today.

    She looks much like a British S Class post war conversion. I think it was called HMS Scotsman.

    I like the look of her.

    Hope you folks are all doing well.

    Mike I really like the S Class, and if things work out you get a smaller one to play with my friend. ;)

      Hi,

      Two years later, on March 4, 1970, her sistership Eurydice sank near St-Tropez, probably for the same schnorkel problem.

      You can visit La Flore, her sistership preserved in Lorient at the submarine base, where u-boots were based during the Second World War:

        I wrote to the Museum in hopes of Photos and possible Line Drawings for this Submarine. What I found at their home page was a Great Photo of the Stern End!!

        Thanks
