THE HISTORY OF THE
SUBMARINE & SUB-CHASER

UNITED STATES NAVY

In 1776, the first use of a submarine in warfare would occur by American’s against the British. The war of course was the Revolutionary War and the craft the American submersible Turtle.

The Turtle was large enough to accommodate one operator and was entirely hand-powered. Lead ballast kept the craft balanced as Ezra Lee attempted [ multiple times ] to attach a time bomb to the hull of British Admiral Richard Howe’s flagship Eagle in New York Harbor.

Ultimately, all attempts would fail, but General George Washington would commission it’s designer, David Bushnel, an Army engineer. His subsequent invention, drifting mines, would destroy the British frigate Cereberus and wreak havoc against other British ships.

After the war, David Bushnel became commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers stationed at West Point. The submarine would wait until the Iron Clad Ship made it’s appearance during the US Civil War.

.

The first USN submarine created to protect wooden ships against ironclads was the “Alligator”.

Built and in service in 1861-1862. It saw limited duty ,

It was not until 1896 that the USN decided to apply Navy Engineers along with private corporations in development of her history making sub program.

Four years later, on the 11th of April 1900, the Holland (SS-1) became the first officially commissioned US Navy submarine. From then on the Submarine, and it nemesis, the Sub Chaser , would be a part and portion of the USN.

From the first mine laying sub to the first diesel powered sub to the first sub with the ability to have a compartment flooded and survive to a the world record depth of 256 feet in 1915, US submarines, developed with the ingenuity of Navel Engineers, American companies and the Navel Personal who tested and proved the end products, brought world renown to the program.

In fact, so renown were US subs that by WWI the then legendary Imperial Russian Navy ordered 18 subs.

Board of admiralty app 1810. The same board room in use today

FROM THE INVENTION OF FIRST USABLE SHIPS CHRONOME4TER AND DECK WATCH, TO THE FIELD WATCH, TO WWI WHEN THE WRIST WATCH [TRENCH WATCH] BECAME A WAR TOOL, THE INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENTS OF THE BRITISH ARMED FORCES PROVIDED THEIR OWN SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS FOR WATCHES, TIMERS AND CHRONOGRAPHS; THOSE ACCEPTED WERE ASSIGNED A “PATTERN” NUMBER.

THE ADMIRALTY WOULD REMAIN THE NATIONS PREMIER MILITARY AND POLITICAL FORCE UNTIL THE AGE OF AIRCRAFT AT THE END OF WWII

At the beginning of the 20th century, the idea of submarine warfare was considered by senior personnel in the Admiralty to be “Underhand, unfair and damned un-English”.

In fact it was stated by some that Submariners caught in action should be treated as pirates and executed.

How ever, with 30 years experience, the renown of the USN was unstoppable. With this fact in mind, the Royal Navy launched its first submarine, and, coincidental or not, named her the” Holland 1″, in 1901

I remain amazed the name is similar top the first USN Commissioned Sub the” HOLLAND”..

In WWI the Submarine would prove its worth. Five of the Royal Navy’s 14 total Victoria Crosses of the war went to members of the Submarine corp.

HOW THE PATTERN #6 BECAME ONE OF A FEW 6 SECOND TIMERS
[ONLY A FEW COMPANIES PRODUCED A 6 SEC YARDAGE TIMER]

IN 1941, WALTHAM BUILT THE 1ST # 6 SEC YARDAGE TIMER FOR THE BRITS. IT WAS CONSTRUCTED TO EXACT BRITISH SPECIFICATIONS, ALONG WITH A REQUIREMENT THAT THE DESIGN BE CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING SEVERE WEATHER AND FORCES, AND ABLE TO TIME 6 SECONDS PER REVOLUTION OVER AND OVER. THE RESULTING WALTHAM 6 SECOND TIMER WOULD HAVE IT’S CASE MACHINED WITH THE ADMIRALTY PATTERN NO. 6., BROADARROW AND OPERATION CODE AS WELL HAS THE ADMIRALTY AND PATTERN NUMBER ON THE DIAL. THIS 6 SECOND ANTI-SUB TIMER WAS THEN WAS ISSUED TO BRITISH CREWS.

BY 1943 WALTHAM EXPANDED PRODUCTION AND THE US WOULD ISSUE THESE TIMERS –WHICH ARE THE BEST– TO THEIR ANTI-SUB CREWS. IN FACT, WHILE THE “JITTERBUG” 10SEC NAVIGATION TIMER HAD US AIRFORCE INFORMATION AND A-8 DESIGNATION, THE SUBMARINE / SUB-CHASER 6 SECOND YARDAGE TIMER WAS NOT EVER USA DESIGNATED. NO NUMBER OR INFORMATION WAS PLACED ON THE CASES LIKE THE A-8 10 SEC NAVIGATION TIMER OR THE A-11 PILOTS HACKING NAVIGATION WRIST WATCH. AND IN FACT, IT HAD THE BRITISH ADMIRALTY PATTERN 6 ON THE DIALS.

SO, THE A-8 NAVIGATION TIMER UTILIZED BY BOTH BRITISH AND AMERICAN AIR CREWS WERE ISSUED WITH USA A-8 MILITARY MARKINGS, INCLUDING THOSE SUPPLIED TO THE BRITISH AIR MINISTRY. WE DISCOVER SOME WITH BRITISH STAMPS, BUT MOST WERE DELIVERED TO THE FIELD WITH EXISTING USA MILITARY MARKINGS- WITHOUT A BRITISH PATTERN NUMBER. BOTH US AND BRITISH AIR BOMBER CREWS BASED IN ENGLAND HAD THE A-8 MILITARY ISSUE WITH ONLY THE US MILITARY ORDER INFO ON CASE BACK. OVER 25,000 US AIR CREW MEMBERS HAD THE BRITISH VERSION.. AT THE SAME TIME THE PATTERN #6 ANTI-SUB SUBMARINERS 6 SECOND TIMER WAS THE ONE WITH BRITISH MARKINGS.

IMG_0420.JPG (44590 bytes)

PATTERN NUMBERS

IN 1938, WITH WAR BEATING ON THE DOOR, THE BRITISH, WHO NORMALLY WOULD HAVE REQUIRED TESTING AND ASSIGNED PATTERN NO’S TO EVERY WATCH AND TIMER, SIMPLY PROVIDED THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS AND THOUSANDS OF WRIST WATCHES, TIMERS AND POCKET WATCHES WERE THEN STAMPED OR ENGRAVED AFTER DELIVERY OR AT THE FACTORY BEFORE DELIVERY.

FOR MANY WATCHES, AN ABBREVIATION OF THE WORDS ” GOVERNMENT SERVICE TEMPORARY PATTERN” –GTSP G.T.S.P. GS/TP — WAS USED INSTEAD OF PATTERN OR USAGE ID. YET THE AGE OLD WAYS OF SOME SERVICES, MAINLY THE OLDEST, THE ADMIRALTY, AND THE NEWEST, THE AIR MINISTRY, CHOSE TO CONTINUE THE TRADITION ON MANY OF THEIR PURCHASES. THUS, SOME KEY TIMERS AND CHRONOGRAPHS WERE ASSIGNED A PATTERN NO. AT THE FACTORY ALONG WITH A FACTORY SIGNED DIAL [ “ADMIRALTY PATTERN NO 6” ].

THUS THE PATTERN NUMBER [PATT.6 ] AND SERVICE NUMBER [U9833] ALONG WITH THE BROADARROW AND DIAL INFO, WAS PLACED AT THE FACTORY. AFTER THE USA JOINED THE BATTLE, SOME OF THESE PATTERN NUMBER TIME PIECES, LIKE THE RARE #6 ANTI-SUB TIMER, WERE ISSUED TO US FORCES WITH BRITISH DETAILS.

IMG_0740.JPG (43715 bytes)

The first British WWII Contract For a *Pattern No 6, *6 second Anti Sub Naval Timer, was made with Waltham in 1941. By 1943, the ” Admiralty Pattern NO 6 ” had proved it’s abilities.This unique 6 second yardage timer was utilized in ANTI-SUB Warfare on both *Submarines and Sub Chasers; for both military offensive & defensive systems.

*IN THE US AND GB.

The 6 sec ANTI-SUB is the rarest and most collectible of all WWII standard timers. In fact more than even the 10 sec Jitterbug AVIATION Timer by Elgin. Though the pattern 6 second timer was issued to British and American Anti Submarine and Submarine Chaser Personal as well as US Coast Guard Anti-Sub Units throughout the theaters of operation during WWII, they remain rare- especially those that saw ACTIVE SERVICE!

HOW THE 6 SEC TIMER WAS UTILIZED

Every revolution of this timer equals 6 seconds/5000 yards, the A-8 was 10 seconds, so this timer is faster yet as accurate as the vaunted A-8. Why 6 seconds? The rapid 6 second per revolution has to do with underwater sound. Under water sound travels at approx 1450 to 1500 m/s or (1586 to 1640 yards/s). Aping reflecting from a target at 1600 yards would return in approx 2 seconds. It is stated this 6 seconds per revolution utilized by asdic/sonar operators on sub-chasers, cruisers and destroyers to find subs and on subs to find prey, and evade destroyers

IMG_0706.JPG (55921 bytes)

FOR 110.00
THIS IS WHAT I ENCOUNTERED

WITH THAT IN MIND, THE CRYSTAL ON THIS PARTICULAR PATTERN 6 WAS COMPROMISED DURING WWII. SALT & MOISTURE ENTERED THE WATCH THROUGH THIS MINOR BREECH. OVER TIME,THE SALT INTERACTED WITH THE ENAMEL ON THE BRASS PLATE DIAL EVENTUALLY REACHING THE BRASS PLATE WHERE IT, OVER TIME, BEGAN TO ” CORRODE GREEN” THE AREAS IT CONTACTED.

IMG_0707.JPG (37648 bytes)

THE HAND WAS REMOVED, DIAL REMOVED AND I USED A MIXTURE OF CHEMICALS TO STOP THE CORROSION W/O HARMING THE ENAMEL. AREAS WHERE THE ENAMEL WAS PEELING. I TREATED WITH CARE SO THAT FURTHER WORK WOULD RESTORE THOSE AREAS.

THEN, METICULOUSLY, USING A SUPER-FINE MICRO STEEL POINTED PIC WITH WOODEN GRAVER HANDLE, I ATTACKED THE MINUTE POCKETS OF CORROSION. THEN, WHEN THEY WERE SMOOTH I UTILIZED HAIR SPRING CLEANER, A POWERFUL CLEANER USED ON BALANCE HAIR SPRINGS TO COAT OVER THE BREACHED AREAS FOR 30 SECONDS, THEN I COATED THE DIAL WITH A MIXTURE OF PRODUCTS WITH A BASE OF SILICONE 7. AFTER AN HOUR, I REMOVED THE EXCESS WITH WATCH MAKERS PAPER.

IMG_0710.JPG (35344 bytes)

REMEMBER, TO BREECH THE ENAMEL, IT HAD TO TAKE TIME. THEN IT CREATED MINOR “BUBBLED” AREAS WHERE THE SALT INTERACTED WITH THE BRASS TO REVEAL GREEN CORROSION.

IMG_0715.JPG (54215 bytes)
HAND NEUTRALIZED LIGHTLY SANDED PAINTED REMOUNTED

LUCKILY, BEING THAT IT WAS MOISTURE VS WATER, ONLY THE DIAL AND HAND WERE EFFECTED. THE PROTECTION DESIGNED INTO THE CASE KEPT MOISTURE FROM REACHING THE MOVEMENT. THE FACT THAT THE HAND BARREL ACTUALLY RUSTED AND EXPANDED- SEALING THE ONLY OPENING THAT MAY HAVE ALLOWED THE MOISTURE TO ENTER THE MOVEMENT, THAT OF THE HAND PINION..

It is the most precise well made 6 seconds yardage timers. Only a few companies mage a 6 second timer. Extremely rare.

HOW THE 5 SEC TIMER WAS UTILIZED
Every revolution of this timer equals 6 seconds/5000 yards, the A-8 was 10 seconds, so this timer is faster yet as accurate as the vaunted A-8. Why 6 seconds?

WWII USA SUB CHASER DESTROYER

The submarine chaser was a small and fast naval vessel specifically designed for anti-submarine warfare. Although many nations built similar vessels and used the designation “submarine chaser ” , it was a designation famously known around the world for ships built by the US. Many of the US World War I sub-chasers found their way to friendly powers by way of Lend-Lease in World War II.

U.S. Navy submarine chasers were designed specifically to destroy German submarines in World War I; then Japanese and German submarines in World War II. At 110-foot (34 m) the patrol craft of the design first used in World War I carried the hull designator SC [submarine chaser] .

Though they carried machine guns and anti-aircraft guns, the weapon of choice was the depth charge. Larger 173-foot (53 m) sub chasers used the PC hull classification symbol (for Patrol, Coastal).

By the end of World War II, submarine chasers had sunk around 67 German U-boats. In the Pacific Theatre, submarine chasers were used for amphibious landings, courier and escort duty.

In World War II, the United States Coast Guard utilized the SC for destroying German U-boats trying to sink merchant convoys. They would wait off the coast of the United States until the merchants ships departed American ports.

BRITISH & THE SUB CHASERS DESTROYER

In early 1915, the British Admiralty selected the US Elco company for the production of 550 Motor Launches 80 feet (24 m) in length and capable of 20 knots (37 km/h), armed with a 3-pounder gun, towed paravanes and later, depth charges, for anti-submarine work. The order was completed by November 1916, and the vessels entered Royal Navy service.

THE SC-1361

Meylan was a watch engineer who strove for perfection. With an understanding of both market demands and technological advances, he succeeded in producing extreme precise small movements for ladies watches, enabling Glycine to introduce the finest miniature movements clad in gold and platinum cases, often studded with diamonds. Glycine soon became a supplier to the wealthy who valued these works of fine craftsmanship. Around 1931, Meylan presented a well-functioning self-winding watch entirely of his own invention. During WWII, Glycine, with Eugène Meylan SA, produced military watches, chronographs and timers.

BROAD ARROW AND WALTHAM MOVEMENT INFO

GSTP / BROADARROW

BROAD ARROW

A broad arrow or pheon is a type of arrow with a typically flat barbed head. It is a symbol used traditionally in heraldry, most notably in England, and later the United Kingdom to mark government property. The Office of Ordnance was created by Henry VIII in 1544. It dates back to the position of Master of Ordnance, one of whom, Nicholas Merbury, was present at the Battle of Agincourt. The Office became the Board of Ordnance in 1597, its principal duties being to supply guns, ammunition, stores and equipment to the King’s Navy.

The headquarters and main arsenal of the Office were in the White Tower of the Tower of London. The broad arrow mark has been used over the years by the Office and Board to signify at first objects purchased from the monarch’s money and later to indicate government property. With the demise of the Board in 1855, the War Department and today’s Ministry of Defense continued to use the mark. The arrow also appears in the Ordnance Survey logo. The broad arrow frequently appeared on military boxes and equipment such as canteens, bayonets and rifles, as well as the British prison uniform from the 1870s, and even earlier, that of transportees in British penal colonies such as Australia The broad arrow marks were also used by Commonwealth countries on their ordnance.

The broad arrow was used by the British to mark trees intended for ship building use in North America during colonial times. Three axe strikes resembling an arrowhead and shaft, were marked on large mast-grade trees.It is currently a criminal offense in the United Kingdom to reproduce the broad arrow without authority
