Product Information

Navy Torpedo Depth & Roll Recorder, Type H.C.4, Mark 3, dated 1946 . It was fitted into a practice warhead that contained no explosives, the depth and roll recorder measured torpedo performance during testing and training. It recorded the depth at which a torpedo travelled after launching, and whether the torpedo rolled from side to side. If the torpedo ran too deep, or if it rolled from one side to another, it would be less likely to hit its target, or could miss it altogether. Incredibly the clock work mechanism still works. A fascinating piece of Naval curio and a great display item.
