Modern usage[edit]

I'm a 58 year old Brit and I'd never heard of this term until I came across it reading The Cruel Sea. It doesn't seem to be in current use. I suspect it was just WWII service slang which may have leaked into wider use for a while before disappearing, despite the Terry Wogan reference in the article. Does anybody have any info about this? --Ef80 (talk) 20:22, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

The term snorkers predates the word snorkel, which was derived from the german schnörkel, used on their submarines from about 1942 onwards.96.54.42.226 (talk) 21:10, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
