THIS WAS TOLD TO ME BY A MAN WHO WAS ON A SUBMARINE
DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR. IF A SUB USED ALL ITS
TORPEDOES BEFORE COMING BACK FROM A CRUISE, AS THE
SUB CAME BACK TO ITS BASE, THE CREW WOULD ATTACH A
BROOM TO THE PERISCOPE. HE SAID THAT IT WAS SOMETHING
THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN VERY OFTEN AND A HUGE AMOUNT OF
PRIDE WAS HAD BY ANY CREW WHO COULD RETURN TO BASE IN
SUCH A MANNER.

Submitter comment: HE WAS A RATHER UNUSUAL SUBMARINER BECAUSE HE WAS
SIX FOOT TWO INCHES TALL. I DON'T REMEMBER HIS NAME.
