1951 - Loss of HMS AFFRAY

17th April. HMS Affray fails to respond to signals and, as time drifted on, she was given up for lost along with her crew. She was found on 14th June in 200ft of water on the edge of the Hurd Deep in the English Channel. Most of her crew had come from the Portsmouth area and there was great sadness that a modern submarine could be lost without explanation.
