The Shipwreck That Never Was: The “UX-791” and Great Lakes Maritime History

“TUE., JAN., 28, 2020@09:21: DO YOUR RESEARCH THOROUGHLY BOYS, LADIES AND BRAVO ZULU, YOU HAVE SOMETHING THERE AND WE HAVE TO KEEP W.W.II NAVAL HISTORY ALIVE!!!”

“NOTE: I NEVER HEARD OF U.S.S. SABLE SUNK BY ONE OF OUR CANADIAN FRIGATES, UNLESS U.S.S. SABLE WAS ALREADY SUNK, OR SINKING AND ONE OF OUR FINE FRIGATES OF THE R.C.N., OBTAINED HER ON ASDIC AND BLEW THE HECK OUT OF ‘OL U.S.S. SABLE …AS SHE WAS TWISTING AND TURNING UNDERWATER AND CLASSIFIED AS A GERMAN U-BOAT AND ATTACKED BY EITHER DEPTH CHARGES, HEDGEHOGS, SQUID-IF IT WAS A R.C.N., LOCH CLASS FRIGATE, AS YOU SAID FRIGATE, THOUGH OUR PROFESSIONAL R.C.N., FRIGATES COMPLEMENTS OF W.W.II, WOULD NOT HAVE ATTACKED U.S.S. SABLE…WHILE SHE WAS AFLOAT, THAT IS FOR SURE!!!”

“YOU HAVE SOME KIND OF A SUBMARINE…NICE FIND, AND ALL THE BEST WITH YOUR RESEARCH AND AS YOU SAY U-BOATS WERE IN OUR ST. LAWRENCE RIVER DURING W.W.II/1939-1945, THOUGH, THE GREAT LAKES=RESEARCH IS THE REWARD!!!”

“ALL THE BEST IN YOUR W.W.II NAVAL RESEARCH AND BRAVO ZULU TO OUR DUTY, HONOUR AND VALOUR…UNITED STATES COAST GUARD…ALL OF THEM MY FRIENDS!!!”

Introduction

This post is a little late as its subject has since run its course on social media and has been discounted (or at least forgotten, hopefully). This post is regarding a fake news story that made waves on social media a year ago and its implications. On February 18, of 2016 came this headline: “USA: Mysterious Nazi Submarine from WWII Discovered In Great Lakes” from the infamous faux news site World News Daily Report. The issue isn’t the fact that this is a fake news article cobbled together from facts gathered from skimming Wikipedia and poor photoshopping. The issue is that people believed it. World News Daily Report is a fake news site done for the sake of satire and they actually say as much, that it’s done for entertainment purposes with a large picture of a finger pointing at you mockingly for believing it.

  1. WARSHIP WEDNESDAY, April 28/2021, @18:05-WELL, IF THIS BLOG AND ALSO NEWSPAPER ARTICLE, IS NOT FICTION and a CANADIAN HOAX, WE WILL SEE; AS U-Boat.Net and OTHER GERMAN U-BOAT SOURCES, STATE THAT U-791 WAS NOT COMMISSIONED, INTO THE KRIEGSMARINE of W.W.II/1939-1945. IT WAS CANCELLED and, I REPEAT NOT COMMISSIONED, SO IF YOU NON-FICTIONALLY DO HAVE A U-BOAT, YOU HAVE TO ACCUMULATE FURTHER RESEARCH, AND SEARCH FOR OTHER IDENTIFICATION SOURCES, AS DISHES, PARTS OF THE INSIDE OF THE U-BOAT, CLOTHING, MANY W.W.II ANTIQUITIES…OF THE ACTUALLY U-BOAT FOUND, WILL NON-FICTIONALLY STATE WHAT U-BOAT IT WAS!!!

    NOTE: IF YOU DO HAVE A GERMAN U-BOAT, AND AS THE PHOTO STATES, IT IS AFLOAT, ONCE INSIDE THE GERMAN KRIEGSMARINE U-BOAT, IF YOU CANNOT FIND ANY IDENTIFICATION NUMBER OF THE U-BOAT OUTSIDE, ON THE CONNING TOWER, ETC., WHICH WOULD BE COMPREHENDABLE, ONCE INSIDE THE GERMAN U-BOAT; THERE HAS TO BE SOME MATERIALS, AND/OR PART OF THE U-BOAT, THAT HAS THE U-BOAT’S NUMBER ON IT…U-?

    Good Luck, in YOUR FUTURE ENDEAVOR: Brian Murza…Killick Vison, W.W.II Naval Researcher-Published Author, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
