Somewhere in the Mediterranean, at the bottom of the sea between Crete and Cyprus rests the wreck of the INS Dakar. The pictures below show metal pieces, parts of a broken submarine, silent items and still photography. Unseen to the us there are 69 men that perished along with their boat. The sea is their grave and between the wreck of their broken submarine they rest.
