Panel 1: "The Lookout: the Eyes of the WWII Submarine"

Panel 2: "Submarine Lookout":
Standing his watch on a perch high above the deck,the lookout was the eyes of the submarine while surfaced. Often while submerged he was manning the sonar gear, thus becoming the ears also. Thoughalways of junior rating, his keen sight and alertnesswere vital to the success and survival of his boat. No words could galvanize a crew to action faster than his excited shout, "Smoke on the horizon!" To his steadfast courage and vigilance, we dedicate this memorial.
