Here's a neat article published in Boston Globe about the fate of the USS Grunion and her crew.

There is an interesting parallel here with the wrecks of the Dutch submarines O16 and K.XVII which were both lost in December 1941 and rediscovered thanks in part to sons of officers serving in them at the time. See www.dutchsubmarines.com (http://www.dutchsubmarines.com) and look for submarines O16 and K.XVII for further details.

That is neeto, I just read about Grunion in a history book today. And just like that they found her.

Anyone else have a lost ship they want to find? Just send me to an article on it.

The wreck of K.XVI still hasn't been located although an attempt has been made in 2003. In December 1941 she attacked the Japanese invasion convoy off Kuching and sank the destroyer "Sagiri", but was herself sunk shortly afterwards by the Japanese submarine I66. There were no survivors.
Again, see www.dutchsubmarines.com (http://www.dutchsubmarines.com) for further details.
