Another Pirate Story (True)

You might recall I posted a story about the skull & Cross Bones flag flown by returning British Submarines from successful patrols. I mentioned the fact that HM/SM Conqueror was the last submarine to fly the flag after returning home from the Falklands war having sunk the Belgrano.
I have another very interesting tale about the same submarine in an adventure from the Cold War.
HMS Conqueror’s biggest secret: a raid on Russia

The submarine that sank the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano during the
Falklands war was involved in a much more daring and dangerous Cold War operation only weeks later

Cheers and keep reading.
