Here's a bit more info and an interesting spin on the story - a WWI Australian sub was lost in those waters and never located.

let's try this link

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/defence/navy-divers-find-uncharted-submarine-off-rabaul-papua-new-guinea/story-e6frg8yo-1226179386239

oh well... one of those newspaper sites...

what I did was type "new guinea submarine" into Google and the entire story came up, without the request for subscription...

Some more information here: www.abc.net.au/news/2011-10-28/png-submarine-wreck/3607142. Now thought to be a Japanese sub.

A Kiwi and an Aussie Diver?

Probably a big esky (Chilly Bin) of beer and they want to keep it for themselves.

There must be a lot of wrekage down there, would take a bit to identify it.

Australians don't drink Fosters.

We let the rest of the world have that swill, while we drink real beer.
