Howdy y'all, I've been seeing a lot of accusations flying around that this video is "clickbait." As a result, I'm changing the title slightly to more accurately get across that no, this guy did not survive for 18 months underwater lol. Anyway, if you're here you probably watch a lot of RealLifeLore videos, and if you watch a lot of RealLifeLore videos you'd probably like to see them early and ad-free and also see an upcoming 30 minute-long RealLifeLore special. You can get a free Nebula subscription with any CuriosityStream subscription and luckily for you, CuriosityStream just started running a sale where a yearly subscription is just $14.97.

Imagine suffering through one of the most painful things a human can exprience, witnessing 3 of your crewmen die, having to swim 5 miles afterwards and running across multiple towns for 18 months to avoid capture until you were saved, just to be called a liar and an idiot for the rest of your life

My father was a WWII submariner, he told me about the training to use the DEA in the tank at HMS Dolphin. It did not sound like pleasant operation to undertake so big credit to a man who actually survive the escape. Fortunately my father never had to rely on his training but being a submariner was one of the more risky arms to serve in, regardless as to which nation you were fighting for.

Most submarine crew who survived their boat going under, were on duty at the exterior bridge when the sub hit a mine. They were simply swept overboard and survived the ordeal of having to reach land by swimming. For those inside the hull, going under was death sentence.

Well, he "survived" a lot longer than 18 months - right up til 1985. Putting 18 months in the title implies he survived some perilous circumstance for 18 months, and the most obvious assumption is that the "perilous circumstance" was being underwater in a dead sub. Nothing in the title suggests those 18 perilous months were hiding from an enemy army. Total clickbait.

It turns out the odds of surviving a singling sub are way lower than 5%. The odds of anyone surviving the sinking at all are around that, but there's no guarantee that you'd be one of the people to get out as this story shows.

Can't even imagine what this guy went through AFTER his ordeal. Nobody believed him. Even though he told only the truth, as he knew it. He was branded a liar, and probably spat-upon everywhere he went, because "how dare you lie about being a WWII hero?!!" Newspapers probably took every opportunity to question why he got a medal from the Queen. Did he deserve it? There was no way to prove the veracity of his story, because underwater salvaging would not become a "thing" for several decades. He died with everyone probably thinking he was a terrible fibber, and a disgrace to the British Isles. Even his own family. He was only vindicated, completely, a decade after he passed away! It's great to know that his story was true all along, but... how effing shitty is it that this guy lived his entire life after WWII with everybody, at the very least, thinking he was a "crazy drunk," who fibbed his way into false heroism! That would literally drive me insane!! I'd probably wind up in prison, after I inevitably snapped from all that stress! There'd be days I'd wish I had died in that submarine. Not even lying about that... Can only imagine he felt a little the same way, at times... This guy died a hero JUST for enduring the derision he no-doubt received for decades after he got back to England.

Heck of a story and great video. I was thinking about the bends though. You get it from your body not excreting a buildup of CO2 so bolting to the surface shouldn’t hit you that hard. I think that’s how free divers don’t die of the bends. But his lungs could over-expand if he held his breath while rising since oxygen does expand. That’s why you are always suppose to keep breathing while diving.

A great and sad story. This is what sometimes bothers me about these interrogators. . The video said his story kept changing as years went by or everytime he was interrogated. Why does he needed to be interrogated more than once? And then years after, of course is going to change, he's bound to forget details. His name was not in the ship's register, like what? He sneaked inside a submarine? Jesus Christ. Who knows, he may have been a spy, who was going to be inserted at the port of docking, so they kept his name out of any official record. Glad he got the last laugh at all those jokers.

this video makes me feel very odd. just a few weeks ago, august 30, 2020, my mom died in a scuba diving accident, because of the bends. her heart stopped pumping because her chest cavity filled with air. i’m still in shock, don’t know what to do.
Actually, you have to breathe compressed air for a while to get the bends. Free divers go as deep as 400 feet, but since they are holding their breath, not using scuba tanks, there is no risk of the bends.
AudieHolland Жыл бұрын
I also read somewhere that the escape gear was not meant to have the escapees breath during their escape but to make sure they kept exhaling throughout their meteoric rise to the surface. That way there's no chance at 'divers sickness.' But if you're way too deep, you'll never reach the surface unless a miracle occurs.
TuckingFypo Жыл бұрын
@AudieHolland the reason you exhale is so your lungs don't explode when the gas inside expands. You'll still get the bends on the way up though, it's caused by the gas dissolved in the water in your tissues

The submarine at depth is at atmospheric pressure inside so the submariners could not have got decompression sickness (the bends) on a surface ascent from 52 meters as they would not have had absorbed enough nitrogen into their blood. The biggest issue they would have had is the possibility of lung expansion injury going from 6bar pressure to 1bar (atmospheric), so like free divers they would need to slowly exhale as they ascended to avoid this.

If you escape from a submarine using a Momsen lung from any depth it was designed for(up to 200 feet, give or take) you will not suffer from the bends because inside the sub you don't experience heavy pressure for the extended exposure to extreme pressure of depth for the time it takes to absorb excess nitrogen into the blood. With the air in the lung and what you have in your own lungs, you can slowly surface and survive the trip. Ask the survivors of USS Tang who escaped from Tang after she was sunk by her last MK 18 torpedo that circled around and hit her. She was on the surface and the crew on the bridge survived outright, but a few more escaped from the forward torpedo room by Momsen lung

I dont think its tragic that he didn't live long enough to get recognition... im pretty sure survivng all of that and living afterwards is enough of a reward to anyone.

Maybe can you make a video about the water problem of the netherlands in 1953? I live in the netherlands, and like to learn more about that!

What a sad story that he was not only disbelieved, but he believed in the depth erroneously, and never knew the truth himself.

I'm not sure the bends is a concern as there is very little time from flooding the escape hatch until the surface, there probably is not enough time for gasses to dissolve into your blood. Recreation dive table for non-decompression dives tend to max out at 130-140' but even at that, they give 8-10 minutes of bottom time before requiring decompression.

If there were 79 subs sunk, with only 4 sailors escaping , that is WAY less than 5%, as each sub would have had many sailors on board.

He's the only survivor and he "pushed the other 3 men out before himself" if i was the first guy out, I'd feel really bad and I think people would think less of me if I survived because I went out first. Its a bit suspicious to me

The title is still a bit weird even after the changes. It implies that that the impressive part of his survival was surviving 18 months on an island, which might have been the case if the island were uninhabited. While he did risk capture (and the locals hiding him risking execution) during the stay on the island, I'd say as concerns the issue of survining; anything he faced during the 18 months after reaching land is small-potatoes compared to the ordeal of escaping the submarine and swimming ashore while suffering from severe Decompression sickness

Legends become legends only after they die, its just how life is. People are jealous and want to hurt you, no matter what you did. Don't know how can you not believe someone who was found by innocent fisherman... Of course he wasn't found on the list, he was a passenger in the middle of a war

The bends would not have affected him unless the interior of the sub would have been pressurized to that of the water outside the sub for at least 5 minutes or longer. Going from 1 atmosphere pressure to a depth of 170 foot pressure within the time it would take to pressurize to that depth and then get to the surface would not have induced the bends.

1:14 If 79 subs go down and only a fraction (or a single sailor) of 4 of them have any survivors, how are your odds of escape 5%? 5% is roughly 4 divided by 79, but the 4 escapes did NOT include the entire crews of those submarines. The individual sailor's odds of escape are MUCH, much lower.
