The incredible story of the Australian submarine AE2 which entered the Dardanelles on 25 April 1915. AE2 subsequently sank in the Sea of Marmora, and her Captain (Stoker) and Crew were captured and imprisoned by the Turks.

“Three a.m. on Sunday, 25 April. It was absolutely dark, still, and dead calm as AE2 entered the Dardanelles Strait and, following the same plan as on the previous night, crept slowly along on the surface. With broken clouds shutting out such light as a moonless sky even yet contrives to give, the searchlight seemed more powerful than before. As we neared the white cliffs one felt forced to edge away from the light and nearer and nearer to the European shore.”
