Probable find of U-boat in the Churchill River

August 1, 2012 by Sharon Adams

Second World War buffs are awaiting authentication of a discovery of the wreck of a Second World War U-boat in the Churchill River, 100 kilometres inland, in Labrador.

German U-boats did patrol Canada’s coasts and waterways during the Second World War.  Legion Magazine has been following their fate in U-boats and the Spy Who Came Ashore, The Battle of the St. Lawrence Begins, Predators in the St. Lawrence, Torpedoed in the St. Lawrence, and The Luck of the U-boats.

A battery-operated weather station was recovered in Labrador decades after being left  by a U-boat. We blogged about that in May .

The German government has said more than a dozen U-boats are still unaccounted for.  If this is one of them, it is likely to be declared a war grave at sea, and will not be brought to the surface.
