    This is probably the only submarine remotely close in shape.

    O.K was she not made out of cooper and also was she not sharp at each end?? I do know that the National Maritime Museum has one, she was in the main hall on one of the wall's.

    I have a copy of the "Devils Device." on Whitehead,if you want me to look anything up etc. for you, Richard.

    (Full of interesting stuff = e.g what links did he have with "The Sound of Music!")

    Thanks David, a very kind offer...

    "The Sound of Music"...not really my sort of thing, so I wouldn't have a clue as to what Mr Whitehead had to do with that!
