HC Deb 17 January 1924 vol 169 cc276-7W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in view of the difficulty experienced in locating Submarine L24, the Admiralty are considering the possibility of devising any means whereby a disabled submarine can make her position known to ships on the surface?


There are already a number of means by which the crew of a disabled submarine could indicate their position. In the case of L24 there is no reasonable doubt that the flooding of the vessel and the death of the crew followed immediately upon the collision.
