Pictures Of Lost Submarines

Some pictures came out recently of what may be two of history's most famous submarines in their final resting places. Most importantly, the Russian team that found what may be the wreck of USS Wahoo (SS 238) -- which I blogged about last month -- released some pictures that can be viewed here. Here's one of the pictures, of the rudder, stern planes, and props:

In the other piece of submarine photo news, underwater pictures of the Royal Navy's Holland V can be seen here -- divers just recently finished cleaning all the nets and other flotsam that had collected over the hull since she sank under tow back in 1912. (The article says that this boat is the RN's first submarine, but I always thought their actual first submarine sank a year later, and was raised in the 1980s -- it's now on display at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum.)
