Abstract : The red lighting installation of the U.S.S. SWORDFISH was surveyed with a view to determining the adequacy of the installation to provide for subsequent dark adaptation of the crew. In general, illumination was evenly distributed and adequate for normal operations. The general level of illumination was considered to be somewhat too high. Specific discrepancies are noted, the most constant one being the tendency for the JF330 lighting fixtures to leak white light at both ends. (Author)
