Atlantic Ocean Date:1917 Duration:2 min 56 sec Sound:NO SOUND
The U.S.Navy submarine AL9 performing high speed maneuvers on the surface, during World War 1. What looks to be a camouflage paint scheme is where paint has been abraded away by the sea. Toward the end of the sequence, a Pennsylvania-class "Super Dreadnaught" battle ship is seen in the background.
(Note: During World War I, Captain of the AL-9 was Captain Percy T. Wright, and the Executive Officer was Commander Terry Brewster Thompson, who later wrote about the exploits of the AL-9 in his book entitled "Take Her Down".)
