Wreck of World War II submarine containing remains of 58 sailors discovered 77 years after it was sunk by Nazis
NEARLY eight decades after it was sunk by Nazis, a British WWII submarine containing the remains of 58 sailors has been accidentally uncovered.

DIVERS have discovered the final resting place of 58 British sailors who died 77 years ago during World War II when their submarine was sunk by the German military.
HMS Narwhal was found accidentally by a group of divers searching for the remains of a lost Polish sub.
It went down with all hands 225 kilometres off the east coast of Scotland in July 1940 during the Battle of Britain.
The sunken submarine was spotted using 3D radar scanning technology and appears to be lying intact beneath 94 metres of water.
