The Admiralty have announced that submarine `E7' was presumably lost

off the Dardanelles, as has been stated in a Turkish official report. According to this report, three officers and twenty-five of the crew were taken prisoners. Thus all, or nearly all, were saved. The losses among our submarines have been small in view of the damage they have inflicted on Turkish ships of war, supply ships, and transports during their daring passages through the Dardanelles and in the Sea of Marmara. Lieutenant-Commander Cochrane, who commanded the E7,' was recently awarded the D.S.O. for his services.
