Can’t remember the source, but I remember seeing it on a periscope diagram. For the life of me, I can’t remember it.

Per Hitman’s research it seems the Germans dropped the stadimeter with integrated RAOBF early in the war in favor of binocular optics. The thinking I guess was that the added spatial awareness made up for it. So the
C/2 Standsehrohr attack scope (ie the one we all know and love) did NOT have that feature.

Some details here: http://www.tvre.org/en/aiming-with-the-periscope

See especially drawing 16.

Simple answer, some boats had it, some didn´t, but they did seem to stop supplying new boats with the device as the war went on.

There was one in Das Boot, you can just make it out during the DD duel! The old man is looking up to see the bearing, and I think his left hand was adjusting the RAOBF.

Default Correct side for passing buoys

Red, right, returning ... everywhere?

You have just discovered IALA System "A" buoyage. Everywhere in the world except the USA and places that the USA has influenced, like Japan, Korea and the Philippines, have the green buoys to starboard as you proceed with the flood tide.

As you are heading into a port then the tide floods towards the port so you pass red buoys on your port side
