The plane was to have picked up divers (or the Chatham operation. Ebbing Tide Aids Survivors The submarine lay in silt about 42 feet below the surface at low tide. The ebbing tide had sided the divers in reaching the craft, which had gone down in water M feet deep. The vice admiral's announcement said: "With great regret I must announce that it is (eared there has been a heavy loss of dockyard life in the disaster which sank his majesty's submarine Truculent late yesterday evening." Of the TO aboard, 58 were sailors and 18 were dockmen sailing as part of the crew in a test cruise after refitting. The admiralty said the six bodies found today were discovered In barrow deep, about 10 miles northeast of where the sub went down. They were picked up by the rescue vessel Zest. Apparently the bodies had been swept toward the open sea by the outgoing tide this morning. Guided by the sub's yellow buoys, possibly released accident* ally, the divers in unwieldy equipment and swift-moving frogmen In web-footed rubber suits crawled over the sunken craft laboriously tapping out messages In Morse code. Messages Bring No Bispsase But a naval officer at the scene said repeated messages like this had brought no response. • Word from the salvage vessels said the divers found at least (our of the Truculent's seven compart' ments flooded. "It Is possible," a naval officer said, "the last three compartments are unaffected. A diver Is making a fresh descent to examine the deck and superstructure to SH whether or not the hatches are open. "If they wo open there can be even leaj possibility of anyone on board being left alive."

Any not yet picked up by now almost certainly have died from the shock of the icy water. The admiralty will try to lift the sunken ship. No one could say exactly when the attempt will be made. An admiralty spokesman said, it would be a three to four day operation, depending on how badly the hull is damaged, the currents and the position in the mud. At noon today, 17 hours after the Truculent settled in the silt of the Thams estuary 54 feet below the surface, an admiralty spokesman announced: "At the 1 moment no indication has reached us of answers to signals by tapping or other means, by anyone who might be Inside the submarine." The Truculent, which itself sent 20 Japanese ships the bottom during World War H, met disaster last night. The 643-ton Swedish tanker Dlvina, from Stockholm, was coming In 55 miles due east of London. The Truculent, bound for Sheerness dockyards, had been out since yesterday morning on a trial run. row Rams Torpedo Compartment The prow of the Dlvina, equip* ped to break through lee, rammed the ship's torpedo compartment and the underaea craft, which had been running on the surface, sank within a minute. ThU morning one of the 50 lifeboats seeking traces of life In the hulk radioed: "Believe survivors still on board sub." But the admiralty said It had nothing to bear this out. The Truculent was found about six miles west of the point where she went down. Apparently she had been swept along by the tide. The skipper of the 643-ton tanker Dlvina, whose Ice-breaker prow tore Into the torpedo compartment of the sub as It ran oa thf^gurface In the channel, said the craft sank within a minute after the crash.

She lay today in the narrow channel leading to one of the world's busiest ports. She was located 10 hours after she sank, six miles west of where she went down. Apparently she had been swept westward by the strong morning tide. She was roughly 50 miles east of London. The commander of the submarine, U. C, P. Bowers, wa» among those picked up in the water shortly after the crash. He and at least live others were believed to have been standing on deck when the two vetsels collided. The British admiralty began rescue operations almost -mine* dlaUly. For 10 hours no one knew exactly where the sub toy. Then powerful aeareUlfhU picked up the marker buoy attached to the submarine by a cable. It was the first Indication that some of the submerged and trapped crew might be alive.
