DIVERS IDENTIFY SUNKEN GERMAN WWI U-BOAT
Bruges, Belgium — Belgian authorities have identified a German submarine that went missing over a century ago during World War I. One of those was the UB-29, which went missing in 1916. Belgian divers investigated the submarine’s wreck in a shipping lane off the coast of Belgium earlier this year, and officials were able to identify it after finding the tag of the U-boat. Historical records show that UB-29 departed on its final mission on Nov. 27, 1916, with 22 sailors on board. German Ambassador Ruddier Ludeking said his nation wanted the submarine and the 22 sailors’ bodies to remain in their underwater grave.
