Royal Navy Submarine Museum HMS Alliance

The Royal Navy's only remaining World War II vintage submarine, HMSAlliance, is reunited with her periscopes. The boat is high and dry alongside Haslar Creek, near Gosport, England, her home base for many years. Alliance is now a museum piece, slated for opening to the public in 2014. A good year for submariners, especially Canadian ones, given 2014 is the centenary of submarines in Canada.

It's going to be a submarine-museum year! HMCS Ojibwa will soon present her story to the public in Port Burwell, Ontario. Hatches are open this summer for tours.

I am looking forward to touring Ojibwa soon. She is the second Canadian O-boat to be fitted out as a museum, Onondaga being the first. Too bad Okanagan didn't get rescued from the breakers yard.
