Subject: Subject: Submarine Navigation

Speaker: James Taylor OBE FRIN, Submariner and Past President

Abstract: Since their inception at the start of the 20th century, over time and warfare submarines have made the transition from small submersible craft of limited range to today’s nuclear-powered attack or strategic missile-firing submarines. In the beginning, the Royal Navy saw submarines as no fit place for an Officer and a Gentleman, such that for decades afterwards, the Submarine Service was “The Trade”. The First World War saw them come into their own. The Second World War saw something remarkably similar. A major part of the fascination with submarines is their ability to move in three dimensions, unseen. These are the original Stealth Fighters, so how do they navigate.
