Divers find German WW1 submarine "U40"

Apparently they didn't seem too worried about machine gunning merchant sailers and RN for that matter in the water after their vessels had been sunk.....wouldn't say that was cricket either....

I'd avoid re-opening that can of worms lest someone cites the actions of 'Crap' Miers.

Or the two BARALONG incidents of WWI, where the skipper was a submariner. Only happened once in WWII - U852 & the Greek PELEUS, and several of the U-Boat crew were executed/jailed for war crimes.

There were two sides to the Baralong business, the story is not as straightforward as Herbert's detractors always make out.

The story of the Baralong, and also that of the Taranaki (with C24 and U40) and other Q-ships can be read up in detail in 'Smoke and Mirrors', Debprah Lake, Sutton Publlishing 2006.
