Remembering Okanagan

In 1973 the Canadian submarine HMCS Okanagan came within inches of catastrophe.
A British tanker ran over it, tearing into the coning tower, tossing the submarine sideways and back....while the entire crew was inside.

Stephen Puddicombe joined them, and then joined Pauline in studio.
