The Charleston Post and Courier has the following story about British submariners paying respects to the heroic crew of the CSS Hunley. Half of the eight man crew were European volunteers.

British submariners are in South Carolina to pay tribute to the crew of the first submarine in history to sink an enemy warship.

Members of the Portsmouth Submariners Association in the United Kingdom place a poppy wreath Friday at the graves of the crew of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley in Charleston. The poppy is a symbol of courage and sacrifice.

Association members have sent a poppy wreath to the grave every year since 2004, when the last Hunley crew was buried in what has been called the last Confederate funeral.

    Thanks for posting this I had no idea. My dad was in subs during the Korea thing. God bless

    • I was in the infantry, the combat arm of the military and the most grueling so to speak, but I tell you, ain’t no way in hell would I trade places with a submariner. I always thought those guys had nerves of steel. Nothing but the highest of respect for them because I couldn’t do it.
