Other titles:HMS GRAMPUS TAKES ON TORPEDOES [Alternative Title]
Summary: Unedited scenes showing the submarine HMS Grampus taking on torpedoes.
Description: I. Mk 20 torpedo is transferred from the deck of depot ship HMS Adamant to HMS Grampus which lies alongside with two other submarines, including HMS Amphion. The Mk 20 is lowered into forward torpedo compartment.
II. Sequence showing a submarine taking on a torpedo while lying alongside at the submarine base HMS Dolphin.
III. Interior of Grampus. MCU of fore-endsmen at Plane Indicator - they set the hydroplanes for maximum angle of dive. MCU of the Torpedo Firing Panel Operator - 12 lights are on and 6 more come up.
IV. Various shots over a calm sea as Grampus surfaces after a very steep ascent - her bows break the surface first and some time passes before trim corrections can bring the submarine on an even keel. Two more moderate surfacings follow. Final MS broad on the starboard bow of HMS Aurochs as she surfaces.
