Unit / Ship / Est.: HM Submarine E10 

Action : Naval Campaign 

Naval Campaign is defined as to include all sea operations where attrition rates are in ones and twos and which do not fall within specific naval battles such as Jutland, Coronel, Falklands etc. This includes Merchant Navy losses.

Detail :

Submarine E10 left Harwich on 18 January 1915 together with E5 and E15 to patrol The German Bight. They ran into heavy weather off The German Coast and only E5 and E15 made it back to base. E10 was officially posted as Overdue - presumed lost. She is presumed to have struck a mine. A British submarine which vanished on patrol during World War I was recently found almost perfectly preserved in 120ft of water in the North Sea. The remains of the crew of 31 will remain undisturbed in the submarine, E-10, which will become an official war grave. The vessel is the last of the E-class submarines to be accounted for. Commanded by Lt. Cdr William St. J. Fraser, from Harwich, it was on patrol with another sub in January 1915, stalking ships of the German grand fleet, when it suddenly changed course and disappeared. Evidence on the wreck shows it hit a mine off the island of Heligoland, near Denmark. The sub sustained damage that would have made her sink like a stone, according to Sascha Kellersohn, leader of the German diving team which discovered her. He said the latest find allows for historical closure and for any descendants of the dead to mourn for them. Mr Kellersohn added: We will never venture inside: it is a war grave and we have too much respect for the brave men who died with her. The E-10 was build by Vickers in Barrow-in-Furness and launched on December 29, 1913. She was identified by the production number, 431, near the starboard propeller. Las year Mr. Kellersohn found another E-type, the E-16, off Scotland. Source:
