Content : The men in the conning tower of this submarine are keeping watch for hostile ships and aircraft. Merchant ships could be attacked, the sub would dive to escape from warships, but enemy planes were the biggest threat, as they could appear suddenly and bomb the U-boat before it could submerge.
