The Silent Service - WWII submarine shows

Have any sub 'stuff' to sell or trade?

Postby starmaster100 » Sun Feb 01, 2004 7:30 pm

Am looking for any copies of "The Silent Service" which aired between 1957 & 1959. Shows were U.S. Navy anthology shows of submarine service, in World War II.

We're not ignoring you, Buddy. Just trying to get an answer. I think John Clear is selling them. I'll get back to you as soon as I can find out how and where to order them. There are about 20 segments, on 4 tapes, available, I think.

OK. Here's the "straight dope". I got it back fron John this morning. As he says, some of them are grainy, but, in my humble opinion, it adds to the effect. And, I was right, there are 20 episodes.


"Here's the full "blurb" regarding this limited time offer. After reviewing the info below, please let me know if you're interested and I'll put you on a "reserved list" until such time as I receive your payment. My mailing address is shown below.



Finally available! 21 of the original “Silent Service” (USN diesel submarine WWII) television episodes. Reserve yours via email - confirmed order only. You can pick volume #1, 2, 3, 4 - or choose all four. Contact me now for your confirmation.

The last several episodes on each volume are very "grainy" in their appearance as they were taped from a live broadcast over 40 years ago from a low power UHF t.v. station to the receiving television equipped with "rabbit ears" - BUT - viewing them reminds us old guys of exactly how they looked when we viewed them "live" almost 50 years ago.





Order any single volume = $20.00

Order any two volumes = $39.00

Order any three in the set = $57.00

Order all four volumes for = $74.00



All orders include shipment by media mail (the old book rate). Payments can be made by check or money order payable to John Clear at the address below. No phone calls please!



IMPORTANT: Please allow from 6 to 8 weeks from time of payment receipt until delivery as we will be making “runs” based on prior orders received. USPS Media Mail delivery can take up to 10 days for USPS delivery. This offer is limited in time and will not be available for long, so contact me soon. Thank you for your participation in keeping our submarine history alive.
