SUPPLEMENTARY NOTE ON THE REVICTUALLING OF

SUBMARINES AT SEA.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


To refill its side reservoirs with petroleum a submarine

has no need of a pump - a pipe is screwed on to a nozzle in

the top of the reservoir and is passed across to the supply

vessel, and the petroleum is poured straight from the tins

into a funnel at the end of the pipe.

It is obvious that if this is done in a small boat at

night, and with any sea running, a considerable quantity of

petroleum would be spilt.

Further, a large percentage of parrafin and petroleum

tins either leak outright or sweat freely. The French

cruisers have several times seized quantities of petroleum

in tins from sailing vessels in the Syrian waters, and have

been obliged to put a sand barrier round the tins stacked

on board the cruiser to prevent the loose spirit from running

all over the Deck.

It is therefore certain (a) that if the Evangelista had

been carrying petroleum there would be marks of such leakage

on the decks, and (b) that had she recenetly supplied

petroleum to a submarine there would have been a good deal

spilt over the sand ballast.

The fact that there were such stains and that that the

sand was impregnated with petroleum seems to admit of no

other explanation than that the vessel had carried petroleum

and had supplied it to a submarine.
