Royal Navy Torpedo Director - 1909

The following scans, from the Royal Navy's Torpedo Manual, Volume 3 1909 (ADM 186/365 from the UK's Public Record Office) have been contributed by Tony Lovell. On his own website he has created a simulation of this director, along with other components on board a WW1 destroyer: Destroyer Simulation. The main part of his site is devoted to 3-dimensional images of WW1 warships: The Dreadnought Project.
