Three members of the intrepid ‘Santi Find the Eagle’ Team – Piotr Michalik, Tomasz Stachura and Dr Benedict Hac present a talk about their mission to locate the legendary WW II Polish submarine ORP Orzel – the ‘Eagle’ – which went missing presumed lost in the North Sea between 23 May and 8 June 1940. After the fall of Poland to the Germans in 1939, the submarine undertook a perilous crossing of the Baltic and North Sea without charts and reported for duty under Royal Navy Command at the Scottish port of Rosyth. The Polish and British crew undertook several daring and successful missions before tragically disappearing.
