The U.S. submarine AL-11 getting underway in the Atlantic ( possibly Bantry Bay Ireland) in World War 1. As the conning tower fairwater comes into view the short "post" seen in front of it is actually the 3"/23 caliber deck gun in its retracted position Activities of crewmen as they stow lines aboard the submarine. A gun mounted on the submarine. The deck of the submarine. The captain in the conning tower of the submarine. Another U.S. submarine displaying 'AL-10' on its conning tower. The submarine submerges under water. Yet, another U.S. submarine, the AL-4, moving on the surface. (Note: American "L" class submarines in British waters had to paint an "A" in front of their names so as not to be confused with the British "L" class submarines.)
