Very interesting! Wish I could read it.

The second torpedo, the one with the twin (side x side) propellers, is most interesting. I do not recall ever seeing that method of dealing with the control issues of a single screw. The speeds would have been very low too.

These appear to be Whitehead-type fish, most likely intended for something like gunboats and the like.

the last pictures you’re talking about ?
it is a Howell (designed in 1870 and ready before 1891) and not a White head which is younger.

Thanks jp. Those years were a little before my service dates.

Ray probably remembers these examples.
