The Home of the Coxswain
Thank you for taking the time to drop in, I hope that you will find your visit enjoyable.This is a submariner"s site, not a submarine site. What"s the difference? There are plenty of sites about submarines and this site is not intended to compete with them.Our focus is on the people, those men and women of The Trade that proudly served, or are currently serving in submarines of the Royal Australian Navy.Submariners world wide are rarely understood by mere mortals. Submariners of all nations understand this and show respect to each other, knowing the hardship and danger that each has faced to achieve membership to that elite club to which submariners belong.If you have a submariner for a friend, you have a friend for life. In times of need, you know that they will be there for you. So welcome to the Aussie Submariner"s site, Up Periscope..
Please note this site is currently being migrated and as such pages may not be included as yet. If you get an error stating a page doesnt exist, its probably due to the code not being complete for that one. Bear with us - we will get it done eventually.
We will be providing details as we receive them for each SAA Branch"s releases and announcements. There hasn"t been anything lately. Come back soon to see if the Branches have anything to share.
The site needs you to make it work. This site"s purpose is work in conjunction with the Submarine Association of Australia"s web site to inform and provide a single source of information for Australian Submariners (past, present and future). The focus of this site is on the people who crew and support Submarine Operations and without input from those people, the site will have no relevance. So this is a call to arms for all past and present submariners.
We share the load across a number of ex-Submariners to keep Up Periscope running
