Surfacing Australia’s Submarine Heritage
January 1, 1970 @ 10:00 am
One hundred years ago at the outbreak of the First World War, Australia had the most technologically potent submarine capability in the southern hemisphere: the E-class submarines. Tragically in September 1914 AE1 went down with all hands. AE2 rallied and led the charge to be the first submarine in history to penetrate the Dardanelles military defences in Turkey on 25 April 1915. Join maritime archaeologist and Executive Director of Heritage Victoria, Tim Smith, as he presents an illustrated talk on the fate of these submarines and their legacy.
