Abstract : This question may be considered from two different points of view. It concerns the choice of a life saving policy when either escape or rescue survival route is to be selected. It also relates to the decision to be made by the men entrapped in a distressed submarine as to whether to escape or to await rescue. As far as the French Navy is concerned, although its current submarines are equipped with locks and they can be fitted with the D.S.R.V., the choice of a global life saving policy is still at issue.
