It WAS AN IMPOSSIBLE MISSION, April 25, 1915 – Anzac Day landed at Gallipoli – Lieutenant Commander of Dacre Stoker as the captain of the Australian submarine AE2 on a mission for violation of the treacherous Dardanelles Strait, with the intention of disrupting the Turkish supply lines of the Gallipoli Peninsula IsolationFaced with currents, mines and enemy defloration fire, Stoker and his men succeeded where the British and French submarines had to suffer.Stoker’s achievement meant much in military terms, and even more emotionally to boost the morale of besieged Allied troopsBut what was proclaimed at the time as “the greatest submarine feat in history” has since been forgotten.Some Australians even know their country was a submarine at Gallipoli, much less than it boldly reached, torpedoed an enemy craft, and eventually played a central role in Anzac’s troops staying on the bridgehead for eight monthsNow, finally, Underwater Stoker tells the remarkable story of a navy hero and the men under his commandAnd AE2 itself, still lying intact on the soil of the Marmara Sea, is celebrated as the most tangible of Australia’s relic role in Gallipoli, the crucible of the nation
