RN SUBMARINE MUSEUM
The Royal Navy Submarine Museum tells the fascinating story of the RN's Submarine Service from the early 20th Century to the modern nuclear powered fleet. Centre stage are three preserved vessels - HMS Alliance (pictured), launched in 1945 and re-equipped in the 1960s for a role in the Cold War; Holland 1, the RN's first submarine, commissioned in 1901; and HMS X24, the only surviving RN midget submarine from WW2. The more traditional displays include photographs, pieces of equipment, captured trophies - and an astonishing displays of Jolly Roger flags, flown by the RN.
A visit to the RN Submarine Museum can be included in a visit to the RN Dockyard, Portsmouth, and vice versa - a shuttle boat operates between the two.
