USS S-29 (SS-134) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

Commissioned in 1924, the submarine operated in Maine Island, Hawaii, San Diego, Key West, as well as the Panama Canal. Asbestos could have been lurking on this submarine, too, as the mineral was becoming increasingly popular as wall insulation at the time. The USS S-29 became inactive in 1942 and it was subsequently transferred to the Royal Navy. In 1947, it was eventually sold for scrapping.
