The relatives of the crew of a lost British submarine have gathered together to mark the 77th anniversary of their deaths and are determined to finally track down their watery tomb...<br />
<br />
Poignantly, the families met up on HMS Alliance, the only remaining WW2 era British submarine based at the Royal Navy's submarine museum in Gosport.<br />
<br />
Royal Navy submarine HMS Triumph is thought to have been sunk by a German mine whilst on a top secret mission in the Aegean on the 9th of January 1942, but their final resting place has never been found.<br />
<br />
They were traced and brought together by Gav Don, who is on a one-man mission to find the wreck of the submarine that is somewhere in the <br />
Aegean Sea.<br />
<br />
The former Royal Navy officer's uncle Robert Douglas-Don died with the rest of the 62-strong crew in January 1942.<br />
<br />
At the time the submarine was on a top secret mission to recover 18 escaped Allied soldiers from a remote Greek island.
