    The Royal Netherlands Navy have located a German U-boat that was lost 94 years ago in the North Sea.

    Hydrographic Survey Vessel HNLMS Snellius found U-106 in the fall of 2009, while surveying the fairway 70 km's north off the island of Terschelling.



    The discovery wasn't made public previously because it took some time to locate descendants of the 41 strong crew, who all perished.

    94 years ago is very well falling into the period of WW I. First u boat U1 was commissioned into the Imperial German Navy on 14 December 1906.
