At random: Nautilus has long been a popular name for a submarine. Some of the more famous of these are Robert Fulton's NAUTILUS (1800), Jules Verne's fictional Nautilus, and the NAUTILUS of Sir Hubert Wilkins in which he attempted a voyage to the North Pole under the ice (1931). There have also been three U.S. submarines of that name, including the world's first nuclear powered submarine built by the Electric Boat Division.

Digging through my archives and discovered I had two images of the USS S-30 that I hadn't added to PigBoats.COM
These two fill out the tableau of the S-30 at her 1938 visit to Naval Academy at Annapolis.


Enjoy!

I wonder if the crew had as much fun as when we anchored off USNA for 4 days. Weapons off loaded so we had 45 section liberty. It's good to be an E6 and not have to stand a watch while there. Locals paid for drinks and dinner.

As it should be. We all started out as E1 in boot. It wasn't all that way. When I first went to sea on the 599 stores loading was all 3rd class and below. I was 3rd class. When I made 2nd it was all 2nd class and below. When I made 1st class it was all 1st class and below.

AAhhh the luck of the Irish Tom. If it wasn't for bad luck, you'd have no luck...

Been too long but I seem to remember "All hands lay topside to load stores." theory was, I think, you eat it, you load it. Was a lot of "supervising" by officers and chiefs.
