PNG to work with Aust on sailors’ memorial

In a February 1 meeting with his Australian counterpart, Minister Julie Bishop, Minister Rimbink Pato said Papua New Guinea fully respected the sacred nature of the last resting place of the young sailors, which was only recently discovered.

The submarine was Australia’s first submarine HMAS AE1. Its recovery puts an end to a 103-year maritime mystery.

According to Australia’s Navy Daily, the submarine went missing on the 14th of September 1914 with all personnel on board.
