joining up in the mid 50's I never could quite understand how no rescue was attempted on the above when the stern was sticking out of the sea. A torch would have got air in no problem but now we know why. Recent unclassified documents in the paper today stated that the MOD refused help as any hole in the sub would compromise the hull integrity! So!90+ men died through lack of air just because the idiots at the Admiralty were worried about the integrity of a subs hull! The Somme Generals and the fools who launched Gallipoli were just incompetant as it wasn't their lives at risk but this was beneath contempt from supposedly experienced Admirals. One even said the men did not help themselves to escape that's why they died. I hope his family is proud of him, he was not fit to wear the RN uniform. Rant over but it makes me angry when these things are exposed too late for justice.
