Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater. A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. I plan on walking on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can contact me at:

Duties of Lookouts

I ran across this excellent (but long) Royal Navy video about lookouts.  The US Navy was slightly different.  They used a 360 degree system for bearings instead of the red/green terminology.   About 22 minutes into the video they discuss sighting a U-Boat periscope and torpedo wakes.  About 43 minutes in they discuss steps for preparing for nighttime lookout duty.
