After the loss of AE2 all crew members were imprisoned and stayed so til some time after the end of WW1.

A really good read.

G'day Gil, yes a good yarn. There were two RN boats that reached the Sea of Marmara, the E14 & E11, with captains Nasmith and Boyle, both awarded the VC. The story of the AE1 is interesting;
