• Description

    E11 was built by Vickers of Barrow and launched on 23 April 1914. E11 was one of the most successful submarines in action during the 1915 Dardanelles Campaign against Turkey, sinking more than 80 vessels of all sizes in three tours of the Sea of Marmara. E11 passed through the Dardanelles on the night of 18 May. Surfacing off the town of Gallipoli, Captain Nasmith captured a Turkish sailing vessel and lashed it to the conning tower to act as a disguise. This ruse failed to attract any targets, so after several days he abandoned it. E11 made a total of three tours of the Sea of Marmara and sank 27 steamers and 58 smaller vessels.
