Calm Seas to the Submariners of KRI Nanggala (402), on Eternal Patrol

Take a moment today to think of the crew of the Indonesian submarine KRI Nanggala (402), lost at sea off Bali last week. While hope was flickering, search and rescue efforts only yielded a debris field with significant material and POL, according to an announcement from the Indonesian CNO.

Among the items recovered were torpedo tube liners, pipe insulation, orange bottles of submarine periscope lubricant, items used by the crew for prayers, and bathroom sponges.

The submarine is believed to have been lost at a depth of 850m, with 53 souls aboard.
