I'll have to get a picture of one the next time that I am down at the Batfish.  It was just one less thing for me to do, if one of you had a picture of an EB version with a red lense.

The telegraphs in Cod's CT are definitely the same type as the Batfish's.  Pictures were too far away, though, to get a nice close-up view.

Btw, I am really impressed with Cod's interior.  It's amazing at how much equipment is still in her and how nice of shape she's still in.  Your CT, especially, is very nice.  Everything is still there.  No empty wall or ceiling mounts.  No dangling, bare wires.  Looks like she could plot and fire a torpedo if she still had to.

Well, I feel bad (a bit) to brag, but actually we can plot and fire a torpedo.

The Mk. 4 TDC runs like the day it was built, the TDC links to the tubes (forward room is a bit slow), the only weak link is COD needs to know where she is in relation to the earth, since the gyro is not currently functioning. That data has to be hand fed.

Thanks for the positive input though. Yes, we are lucky that the Navy didn't strip too much from her before we got her and most of the stuff taken by the subvets has been either returned or replaced.  But that is a story for another day.
