Churchills 'Lost Submarine' Found

A WWI submarine, HMS E-18 has been found by a descendant of a crewman. Video footage of the wreck has been released and shows the sub in relatively good condition. The BBC's chief political correspondent James Lindale reported the find today, his Grandfathers brother was a 1st Lieutenant on the sub and was lost along with the rest of the 30 man crew.

E18 was part of a fleet of submarines sent by the then First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, to block the trade of Iron Ore across the Baltic which was fueling the German war effort.
