Bill's prime Cause Celebre has resulted in his being included in the Guinness Book of Records as having made the deepest unaided ascent from a sunken submarine. He has other claims worthy of recognition, he was among those officers and men who trained many of the crews who joined the Twelfth Submarine Flotilla during WW2. This Flotilla consisted of X Craft and Two Man Chariots. It was based at Port Bannantyne on the Isle of Bute. The HQ was known as HMS Varbel.


06-03-1945 : XE11 was lost while exercising in Loch Striven when she collided with a boom defence vessel that was laying buoys.


It didn't happen in 1944, the sub actually crashed in 1945.

Lesley Swatton also escaped from the XE11 and was also in the Guinness Book of Records for the deepest ascent unaided.
