Survivors of the USS Squalus. Colorization credit Carol Lassiter.

It was just an ordinary day on the seacoast of New Hampshire, May 23, 1939, when the Portsmouth Navy Yard-built submarine USS Squalus prepared for her 19th test dive six miles southeast of the Isles of Shoals. During this dive, the main induction valve failed to close and water rushed into the submarine, flooding the aft compartment. She sunk in 240 feet of water; 33 of the 59 crew members would be rescued (shown in picture above). It was the greatest submarine rescue in the history of the United States Navy.

Filmmakers Karen Raynes and Mike Garland will present their documentary on the rescue, salvage, and rebirth of the submarine to commemorate the 80th anniversary of its sinking. 

The film runs approximately one hour. A Q&A portion will follow.
