Service

One account of her loss records that the submarine was detected after she became became entangled in a net at Nagara Point. Oberleutmant Heino von Heimburg, whose UB 14 was under repair at Chanak, seized the opportunity and rowed out in a boat with his cook to lower mines down to batter the enemy sub. Cochrane and his entire crew was taken prisoner after he was forced to surface.[6]
