You might start here to do it the way they really did:
Also there is some evidence that even the early fleet boats didn't have a TBT until 1943, or even 1944:
(note that 'Torpex752' is the same Frank Kulik who wrote the Valor At Sea article, and also one of the very first SubSim members)

I wrote a tutorial to explain how to quickly calculate the deflection angle with the SACF, but it can also be done with any slide ruler that has a Sine scale :up: You can get it here: http://files.filefront.com/No+TDC+Tutorial+for+S+Bospdf/;8261928;/fileinfo.html
