HMS Narwhal.<br />
<br />
The icy tomb of 58 British submariners lost in WW2 has finally been rediscovered by accident in the North sea.<br />
<br />
HMS Narwhal departed it's base in Blyth, Northumberland on July 22nd, 1940 tasked with the job of laying mines off German-occupied Norway before being intercepted on-route, killing everyone on board.<br />
<br />
Now 77 years later, the wreck appears to have been discovered by a team of Polish deep-sea explorers, who were carrying out a search for one of their nation's lost submarines, the ORP Eagle.<br />
<br />
The largely intact vessel is lying 140 miles off the coast of Scotland in waters nearly 100 metres deep.
