Yesterday it was 60 years since the Swedish submarine HMS Ulven (The Wolf) struck a german mine in Swedish waters and sank, killing all the 33 man strong crew.

I found a few links, unfortunaly not in english.

Does anyone have more information about the sub, the accident and the buerial of the crew?
