Timeline Event:


Feb 14, 1942

The British submarine, Thrasher, survives an attack off Crete with two unexploded bombs lodged in its deck casing. Lt. Peter Roberts and Petty Officer Thomas Gould take 40 minutes to remove the explosives, squeezed in the narrow confines knowing the submarine might by forced to dive at any moment, leaving them trapped to drown. They both received the Victoria Cross.
