Royal Navy, F - Class Submarines

25th January 2007, 18:04
Has anyone technical Data of the F - Class submarines, Royal Navy, 1913 - 1917. I found that the Class was only three Ships, F 1 - F 3. But I couldn`t
find any Dates or Pictures.
I collect the Royal Navy Submarines of WW I for myself, and miss the F -Class.
Can anyone help?
