Remembering the M2 submarine disaster 80 years on

The submarine sits silently on the seabed. Inside, the bodies of 58 sailors still rest, 80 years after the vessel sank in the English Channel off Dorset. Now some of their family members hope to sail out to the wreck to mark the anniversary of the tragedy. HMS M2 was the world's first underwater aircraft carrier, but it went down with the loss of all 60 hands - including two airmen - in 1932. See the BBC web site for more on this story. Link

Britain designed lots of odd submarines.
The M class and of course the steam powered sub, the K class
