Decided to reword this. Thanks to all that responded on the other thread but we are trying to find information on the Function of each of these three gauges. These were the Main three gauges used by a Torpedo Gunner on a Navy Submarine.

    may I suggest that you obtain your info from the old sub base in New London, Conn. They still have a museum and it was the main training base for subs. The base was actually located in Groton, Conn
    which is across the river from New London. They have a great web site, "U.S. Navy Submarine Base, Groton, Conn" Hope you can find WW II people,you are looking for people in their upper 80's. A telephone call to the museum may get an answer for you.
    U.S. Navy training manuals maybe available after WW II. Army-Navy stores would be a source

    regards

    Did know a couple of WWII torpedo men that were on subs but they are gone now.

    Wally- I gave you a link to the operations manual for compressed air systems on subs of that vintage- if you read thru, will give you details on what the RT system is, etc.

    Let's see, first one depth to keel, no brainer, impulse tank pressure for impullsing em out, (those nasty hot runs) and the WRT, or water around torpedo for tube flooding.
    Hope this helps.....
