The nationality of the submarine is once again unknown. I suppose it to be English, but will immediately move it elsewhere if told to

RN sailors wear navy blue boilersuits. Not usual to wear a belt with boilersuit.

There is a bulkhead immediately in front of the tubes, not seen that before.

Interesting point Stephen : I also never saw a bulkhead immediately in front of the tubes before. Could be a good start for investigation of what kind of sub (nationality) got such a bulkhead.

How about Stern Tube compartment ? It is hidden behind the man in the middle
The pic posted by Stein is (almost) the same as this one = British sub.
And if somebody can ID the wing nut (right, on the lower torpedo) has being an old British type, then we got a definitely answer.

Is not unreasonable to suggest that these pics coming from a french magazine are most likely of a french submarine.??

Believe this could be photographed on a T-class submarine. There is a photo in Paul Kemps book on the T-class Submarines showing similar doors giving access to the forward torpedo space. (Page 109 .. photo of the area in Thesis after salvage)
At the time of Thetis's accident the starboard door was closed but it proved impossible to shut the port door and secure the eighteen turnbuckles to stem the flow of water.
Link to photo found on the web for the A-class submarine HMS alliance which has the same arrangement.
