Bigger show at Navy Open House

Published on May 13, 2013 8:37 AM

CRAMPED, narrow and dark - these are the conditions in which Navy submariners live every day.

At the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) Open House this weekend, the public will be able to get a feel of life on a generic submarine. For the first time, a replica of the interior of a submarine - complete with periscope and sleeping quarters - will be on display.

It will be housed within the Experience Zone, which also serves as a hub for a whole range of naval activities that will allow the public to put themselves in the shoes of sailors.

Visitors can experience the life of navy medical personnel at a mock ship operating theatre - stitching wounds and performing emergency rescue procedures.
