Australia’s longest-running naval mystery – the disappearance of the nation’s first submarine – has been solved after 103 years.

The fate of HMAS AE1 had been one of the navy’s most enduring puzzles, sparking 13 different retrieval attempts since 1914, when the vessel vanished without a distress call off the coast of Papua New Guinea during the first world war.

According to naval historians, ships could find “no trace” of AE1, not even “the tell-tale shimmer of escaping oil on the water”.
