Remembered Today:

Submarine B 6

Hello

In all printed accounts of the loss of submarine B 6 on 28 June 1918, all of the crew is reported killed.

This discounts Commanding Officer BROOKS and First LT Bell surviving and being picked up by the German submarine.

Were any other crewmen rescued?

Thank you.

Volume 3 (Wales & the West) will be out later this year, but Volume 4 (Scotland) is not out for at least another year, unless the publisher ('The History Press' now) has a change of mind or is short of work; and we hope that is the case.

Hi Clio
