Built By: Vickers (Barrow)
Build Group: E Group 2
Fate: Submarine E10 had been sent to patrol off the North-North West of Heligoland on 18th January 1915. The submarine parted company with the sister submarine E5 in the early evening of 18th January and was not seen again.

It was thought at the time that E10 was mined on or about 18th January – the recent discovery of the wreck of the submarine confirmed that she did hit a mine.
All hands were lost in this incident.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission records that the loss took place on 21 January 1915 which, it is assumed, is the day the submarine should have arrived back at Harwich.

The finding of the E10 was a great surprise to our family. Decades wondering what happened to PAG Falconer; my great-uncle. Percy Albert Gordon had only been married a couple of weeks before the E10 sank.
