Training Notebook - Introduction and Construction
I've put this here because it's not strictly a book, more a technical manual. The Canadian submarines built at Chatham (HMCS Ojibwa, HMCS Okanagan and HMCS Onondaga) were different from the ones built for the Royal Navy. In some ways, they were more advanced, making greater use of Glass Reinforced Plastic. This online publication tells the reader everything they would want to know about how these submarines worked.

I've found a series of articles originally published in the Kent Messenger in 1972 which describes in detail the construction of HMS Oberon at Chatham. They were written by Keith Slade, formerly Chief Constructor on the Oberon Project and were given to me by his son-in-law,a member or former member of the KHF after he died, amongst other documents and books. I'm not sure who owns the copyright, which is why I haven't published them on here, but I'm assuming it belongs either to Kent Messenger or to Mr Slade's Estate. I'm fairly certain that I received verbal permission to transcribe them on here and when I get time, I will.
