  • Description

    A new Israeli submarine, the Rahav, made her first public appearance July 20, showing her paces in Haifa, as part of the Navy drive to attract volunteers for submarine crews. It was the largest publicity effort the Israel's "silent service" has made so far.

    Two destroyers, with some 300 youngsters aged 17 aboard, rendezvoused with the Rahav some 9 miles out to sea. The sub immediately started her demonstration, dived, surfaced, using her periscope, radar mast and schnorkel tube.
