The Torpedo Trainer

Over in Fife to look at something else, and realised I was near this – HMS Jackdaw near Crail is a WWII airfield, now mostly turned over to small industrial/storage use. But, in a field full of sheep scoffing turnips, is the torpedo trainer.

It’s basically a big concrete torus, with the remains of a seascape painted on it – a projecting device used to hang from the ceiling, and the student sat in the middle – it’s WWII-era virtual reality, basically.
