British Submarine Found Intact After 94 Years


Image: Wickimedia A First World War British submarine that executed one of the most daring raids during the war was found 94 years after it was abandoned, The Telegraph reports. HMS E14 was located on the ocean bed in the Dardanelles after a search that began in January. This submarine sailed beneath a minefield and evaded the guns and searchlights; it defeated the forces of the Dardanelles and reached the open waters of the Sea of Marmara in 1915. During the following two weeks it sank two warships and a White Star cruise liner with 6,000 Turkish troops bound for Gallipoli onboard. After that period, in 1918, the submarine was abandoned after an operation in the Dardanelles waters. Until this month the exact location of the submarine was unknown. This is the first E class submarine ever to be discovered intact.
