Default Ramblings of an Old Salt

Binge watching the old Silent Service series. Quite enjoyable. I remember watching it as a kid.

Salute, Kpt! That was television when television was a valuable resource. What we lost when CBS news department was commercialized and actual information became a by-product at best! Now science and history oriented stations like Discovery, Nat Geo, TLC, the History Channel have become mostly about UFO weirdness, myths of Ancient civilizations more advanced than our own, paranormal craziness and reality shows.

Very cool! Thank you mate.


@ Rockin Robbins....


Preach! With the way TV channels seem to work these days, maybe we can find good history & science documentaries on the Disney channel or some such nonsense.


Another stray memory... one of the few I have from being so young (about 5 years old I think) ... A guy in our church at the time was a former WWII submariner... describing to me, what it was like to be depth-charged by the Japanese. I remember he said that he could hear "THOOOOB THOOOB" every time one was dumped in the water, and that they would go off with great big crashes that would rattle everything in the sub.... and that everyone was hot and sweaty much of the time.



I remember that I couldn't at the time understand underwater boats at all then, which is what had started that conversation. Oddly enough, I remember that his last name was Seagraves. (Mostly sure anyway.)


What I wouldn't give to go back in time and have that conversation with him again. I'm sure that like nearly all of our veterans, he has passed on... and the history he lived mostly went with him.... Meanwhile, the 'History Channel' spews its nonsensical baloney.
