Dockyard Notes: Argentina
The Engineer

"Argentina has started a submarine boat of home manufacture, of which glowing reports have been published. But in this particular department all submarines excel, to "revolutionise naval warfare" being as necessary to them as motion - possibly more so. Meanwhile a French expert has been writing some most unpleasant things about submarines in a Paris daily, practically implying that the much-vaunted submarine has from the first to last been but a fraud and gigantic piece of bluff. This is going rather a long way; but, still, it is not far from the conclusion that any man of ordinary intelligence must come to after studying such few facts - apart from obviously "picturesque descriptions" as reach us."
