A brass engineer's model of the T-class submarine HMS Tuna.

Mounted on a mahogany plinth, with brass plaque reading: H.M.Submarine "TUNA"

HMS Tuna (N94) was a T-class submarine of the Royal Navy. She was laid down by Scotts, Greenock and launched on 10 May 1940. She was equipped with German-built engines and spent her career in World War II in western European waters, in the North Sea and off the west coast of France, and most famously taking part in Operation Frankton. The raid on Bordeaux harbour was later immortalised in the classic 1955 film "The Cockleshell Heroes". Tuna also took part in many war patrols and her crew received service medals for the boat's destruction of several U-boats.
