The ships themselves and the diving on them in Scapa is the focus of
this talk. Concentrating on the technology of the guns and the armor
the audience will be taken on "dives" using the slides to see what they
look like now, what it is like to dive in Scapa Flow, and to illustrate
the points of the talk. This combination slide and video presentation
feature Toms' underwater photography, historic photographs,
the diving. Tom will speak about the construction and innovation of the
ships and the ships of their day, the Dreadnoughts. Also included will
be information about the smaller ships of the fleet and the idea of
action. The historic context of their development will also be
into the presentation.
