Just pondering about conventional submarines. Does anyone have access to or know of books etc about British conventional submarines during WW2, and how they compared up against the best of German and US subs?

I have read that the post WW2 'Oberon' class diesel submarines were operated by the Royal Navy were in a class of their own. I have been round the Oberon Class sub in the Royal Dockyards in Chatham, also the one that is on show down in Portsmouth submarine school. (the Argentinian sub that was sunk in South Georgia at the start of the Falklands War was an Ex-RN 'Oberon' class sub).

Does the Royal Navy operate any conventional subs now. I did read that we had sold 3 conventional subs to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Naval service a few years ago.

The 3 conventional subs purchased by the RCN were lemons that had been parked for years in the UK. Since coming to Canada they have sat in dock being repaired. Rarely go to see and are useless. The RN saw them coming. Didn't even have to send a taxi for them. Our Conservative Govt of the time (Brian Mulroney the Dick Head) was our PM then. Remember this is the a Conservative Govt that insisted on the Ross Rifle in WW 1. Also a Conservative Govt in 60-61 that tried to turn the Cdn Army into a Civil Defense Force. Also the same Govt shot down the RCAF's Arrow. The most advanced fighter of the time and still could be. One thing about Conservative Govt. in Canada, if they can willingly f**k some thing up, they will.

I believe we had 3 Oberon built for us at Rochester/Chatham in 65/66. I happend to be there on leave at that time in 66. They are now out of service.

Also note we have gone back to being an Army, a RCN and RCAF. I'll give them cerdit for that. No longer Canadian Forces, Sea, Land or Air
