"LOOKING FOR AUSTRALIA’S 1st SUB"
Continuing with extracts from Sharkhunters hot mail courtesy the tip from WIZARD.
"Australia allocates AUD$500,000 to help find Navy’s first submarine HMAS AE1. The Australian government is giving out AUD $500,000 to support an expedition aiming to find HMAS AE1, the first submarine to enter service with the Royal Australian Navy . . . the government would match a private investment which would allow Find AE1 Limited to proceed in its attempt to find the submarine and its crew."
“'HMAS AE1 is one of the world’s great maritime mysteries and this expedition will be one of the most comprehensive searches for the submarine,' minister Payne [Australian Defense Minister] said. AE1 was lost without a trace on September 14, 1914 while patrolling waters off then German New Guinea. The cause of the disappearance is not known."
OVER A HUNDRED YEARS LATER THE SEARCH FOR A MISSING SUBMARINE CONTINUES AND INTENSIFIES.

Good luck Find AE1!
