Lantern Swinger
Sister sub was M1, mounting a 16" gun, sank in collision with a merchant ship SS Vidar ,in West Bay Dorset.

The M class boats were built on redesigned 'K' class hulls.The 'K' being the worst submarine ever.Steam driven,they killed more submariners by accidents than the Germans ever did in war.
Read - The K boats ,by Don Everett.



Book Reviewer
From memory M1 was found lying off Start Point right at the extremity of Lyme Bay. M2 is roughly the other end of Lyme Bay.

M2 could certainly launch the seaplane very quickly, more proof that Submariners do it better (until it all goes wrong)
