submarine U-Bl has been sunk in the
Black sea by Russian warships, ac
cording to information received from
Varna, a Bulgarian port on tha Black,
sea, by the Athens correspondent of
the Exchange Telegraph company..
The submarine, lT-51, gained fame by
eluding tha Britlahv blockade and paasJn
through tbe atralt of Gibraltar to operate
against the allied fleet in the Dardanelles.
The V-U has been cerdlted with sinking
several vessels belonging to the allies, in
cluding the Brittih-JjatUeehlp Majestic.
The British blockading fleet off Gibral
tar was reported to have been warned .of
the approach of the U-61, but tailed to
catch the underwater craft, which went
from Gibraltar to the Dardanelles, where
it did much to prevent the allies' war
ships from co-operating with the land
forces on the Galllpoll peninsula.
Later the U-61 passed through tha Sea
of Marmora and reported to the German
commander at Constantinople. If the
