Lt. R.G. Liveing, editor of Vol VI of the HMS Titania's submariners' journal "Light Airs",  is here photographed shortly before capsizing at Repulse Bay. It is striking that suits and ties are often the 1920s and even 1930s beachwear of choice in Hong Kong. Highly impractical in this case! Liveing was one of the younger officers of HM Submarine L3.

I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to upload "Light Airs" as a Book, as I've recorded the pages as scans and photos when the scanner failed to work. Perhaps David can compress it into a more compact format later. Meanwhile, here goes....

"Light Airs" Vol. VI

Dates of events covered by this document: 
Mon, 1929-07-01 to Mon, 1929-09-30

"Light Airs" in seven volumes was the journal of the 4th Submarine Flotilla. The submarines seem to have each taken it in turns to compile a volume of the journal. Printed by Kelly & Walsh Ltd., Hong Kong, Vol. VI was compiled by members of the crew of HM Submarine L3. The editor was R.G. Liveing and the pages I shall be uploading is from the copy kept by the commanding officer, Lt.-Cdr. W. R. Fell. The journal  gives a flavour of life on a submarine and is a nice example of 1920s humour - submariner humour.
