Lee Chapman told me that his father's German mate had a brother who had been a crew member of the German U-Boat U-862. This crew member visited South Australia after the war and stayed with Lee's father. They went fishing in the Coorong area near the Princes Highway south east of Adelaide. He commented commented that the place had not changed since he and some fellow submariners went ashore in the middle of the night looking for fresh water!!! 

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
