Abele brothers found lost WWII submarine

The sons of an American naval commander have located the submarine in which he died when it sank during the Second World War.

The US navy has confirmed the submarine located by the Abele brothers is the Grunion Lieutenant Commander Mannert Abele was killed when the USS Grunion went down with all hands on July 30, 1942, after fighting a Japanese freighter in the North Pacific Ocean.

His sons Bruce, 78, Brad, who recently died aged 75, and John Abele, 72, started searching for the wreck after a Japanese war historian pinpointed the area where he believed the Grunion sank.
