The Wonderful Periscope the saviour of the Submarine

BABYCRY3 Search Engine

Mention has already been made of the periscope which enables the navigation officer to see what is going on overhead when the Submarine is submerged . Two periscopes, sometimes three ,are fitted to every Submarine in case one should be damaged, and these periscope can be drawn down inside the Submarine if desired. A periscope consists of a long tube at the top of which is a prism and lenses. These catch the view ,and reflector down the tube through other lenses to another prism,and so into a kind of telescope . This telescope magnifies the picture,and enables the officer in charge to see what is happening on the surface above his head. At the bottom of the periscope there is a wheel, something like the steering wheel of a motor -car, by which the navigating officer can turn round the glass eye which rises out the water above  the Submarine,and which this gives him a clear surface view of the sea in whichever clear surface view of the sea in whichever direction he likes to turn the periscope
