My grandfather was on a British sub during WWI. When my mother told me at first I refused to believe they already had subs back then, but they had. I imagined something man-powered with my grampa and his mates turning a crankshaft, but it was in fact diesel-powered. It can't have been much larger than this one, if at all. And it must have been a living hell.

They were not so small (example here [link] )
The boat above is about 10 or 12 meters.

I think it's listed as a SEEHUND on this page [link] . Your ancestors left a rather massive bunker in IJmuiden where these and destroyers were maintained. More shots here [link] .
