SUMMARY
 
     
          Information is not available with respect to offensive gas and smoke warfare apparatus carried.  
          The only material found locally is one paragraph in the general information book which directs that when gas enters the vessel gas masks are to be put on and the vessel is to be rigged for dive except that the engine air induction is to remain open.  Further, after passing through a dangerous zone, the vessel is to be ventilated with the compartment air blowers, and all corners and pockets are to be blown out with compressed air, in order to eliminate any gas.  
          There is also a section devoted to description of the effect of chlorine, nitrogen and oxygen, but as this is concerned solely with abandoning a sunken vessel the section is here mentioned merely for reference.
