I was just about to post a question on tubes.

My question is how were they numbered in U-boats (including the aft ones)? From the photos it looks as if they were numbered Starboard (odd) to Port (even) with the higher numbers uppermost.

Where the aft tubes known as 5 and 6 or Aft 1 and Aft 2?

On the XXI's I pressume the tubes were in 3 banks of two?

Regards
