German Submarine, UB-110. Photo of Control room looking aft, starboard side (by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums)  This image shows manhole to periscope wall, valve wheels for flooding and blowing. Hanwheels for periscope gear, air pressure gauges. The UB-110 sunk after attacking a merchant shipping convoy near Hartlepool in July 1918. It was then salvaged and transferred to Swan Hunter Wigham Richardson Ltd. Dry Docks (Wallsend), with an order to restore her to fighting state. The order cancelled following Armistice and she was scrapped thereafter [via].

    Valve turning order is important. Open Valve 56 before closing valve 5 then 2 turns on valve 24 but make sure valve 39 is only open 1/4 of a turn or this will make valve 2 hard to shut off which could reduce pressure at valve 10. Valve 3 must then be closed after which you need to open valve 123 fully then close valve 43 by 5 turns. Finally push button A. This is the correct submarine toilet flushing sequence. Now pay closer attention as making a coffee is much more complicated…

    Tony– Greetings from the land up over! The submarine dates to WWI, and it amazes me that all those gears and more were replaced by a single compact turbo encabulator.

  3. Tony McGurk Says:

    I’m impressed. Ignore my previous instructions Bunk & just press the “Flush” button on the Turbo Encabulator.

  4. Bunk Strutts Says:

    Tony– Many are not aware that the man who appeared in the “Turbo Encabulator” video went on to create some of the most awe-inspiring amusement park rides the world has ever feared.
