Sunken Sub a Great War time capsule - Age Story

The Age recently published a story on renewed efforts to search the wreck of the Australian submarine - the AE2 - which lies in the Sea of Marmara - where it has rested since April 1915.
The AE2 was the first naval vessel to penetrate the narrows at the entrance to the Dardanelles.
Prior to its famous voyage the AE2 sailed into Mudros Bay on Lemnos.
