Early in 1915 an experiment took place in the Firth of Forth of a C class boat being towed submerged by a powerful tug. The submarine was towed along at various depths, using a towing slip to enable her, at the opportune moment, to release herself and so make the attack. It was C27 which carried out these experiments which proved quite a success, she and C19 were sent to Aberdeen for actual operations.
