IJN L type submarine training movie 1941


As the view moves with the periscope, and the ship - a DD ? - comes into view, I'd say the graduations are genuine, they are on the scope.


the graduations on the scope allow the taking of measurements on the ships's masts thus the range.

scope view is faked but close to the real thing posted by major Schmidt

periscope, gauges etc...

I wonder if any of those in the film survived that war.

very unlikely, between the Hedgehogs, radar directed gunfire, airdroppred mines and and "Fido" homing torpedoes they didn't stand much of a chance now did they ?

Kind of sad to. Bet most of them were just like us in many ways.
