Submarine found after over 50 years

In January 1968 the French submarine Minèrve disappeared without trace off the port of Toulon, taking 52 sailors to their deaths.
Subsequent searches failed to find any trace of the vessel until now when a reanalysis of all the data and use of an American wreck hunting ship have enabled her to be pinpointed.
At last, the families will be able to complete their deuil and say good bye to their family members.
So very sad yet a relief.
Too thick for a PhD!

Re: Submarine found after over 50 years

As someone who served for several year in submarines, I too was quite touched by this story and the relief it brought to the families.
