Hardly surprising. The thing was stowed in a deck container which
subtracted submerged speed but - just to make up for it - added flow
noise (which was a BAD THING when people were bent on introducing you to
the thuggish charms of Messers Depth-charge, Hedgehog and Squid) and - as
has been pointed out - condemned one of your crew to a fate as seabird-
(eyeballs! yummy!) and fish-food if you were interrupted with it aloft.

There's one of the things at Duxford, I think. At least, I am pretty

Never noticed on at Duxford, although there are, as you say, some weird
and wonderful things, especially in Hanger 3.
I saw one at Cosford along with a load of experimental German WWII stuff
that's just more-or-less stacked in a corner alongside a load of old Brit
space programme gear.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Barbeques on fire by the chalets past the castle headland
I watched the gift shops glitter in the darkness off the Newborough gate
All these moments will be lost in time, like icecream on the beach
Time for tea.
