The search for HMS Triumph

The search for HMS Triumph

Welcome to the website for the Triumph Association, which has been formed to commemorate and celebrate the T-Class submarine HMS Triumph, lost in the Aegean in January 1942.

During the second world war some 40 British submarines were sunk in the Mediterranean.  Many have been found, and now Triumph's position is also known, thanks to the work of the notable Greek underwater explorer Kostas Thoctarides.

One of our aims is to reach and contact descendants and relatives of the crew of Triumph.  A crew list (with next of kin as of January 1942) is within this website.  If you are a relative or descendant, or a friend, of a crew member please get in touch with us.

We plan to hold a memorial service at her wreck site, and we would like as many of her crew's descendants to be there as possible. We will hold a second memorial commemoration at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas in Staffordshire, for relatives who cant make it out to Greece. 


Here is a summary of Triumph's story, told in the excellent magazine Britain At War...
