Search fails for Australia's first sub





Searchers have failed to solve the mystery of what happened to Australia's first submarine, lost off Papua New Guinea in 1914.

Navy search teams had hoped an object on the seabed off PNG would be the submarine AE1, lost at the start of World War I.

Instead it turned out to be a submarine-shaped rock formation, Veterans Affairs Minister Bruce Billson said.
