    The cleaning methode used is cleaning vinegar the normal 6% type mixed with regular water (40% vinegar 60% water) and a lot of pacience. But it depends on the degree of degrading start with less cleaning vinegar when it is briddle! Can you post a few pics? And is there a gyroscope mounted?

    its been in the sea 50 years or so and 40 years in the shed. i saved it as it was going for scrap. As for your gyroscope i have a friend who has done a lot of research on early torpedos, Email me on b4drk@btinternet.com and i will give you his number.
