Antarctic tribute to lost San Juan crew


    The crew of an Argentine icebreaker have paid a moving tribute to their comrades lost at sea in a submarine, BBC reports.

    They formed the number 44 on the ice as they headed into the Antarctic while performing a traditional military salute next to their ship, the ARA Almirante Irizar.

    Forty-four submariners on the ARA San Juan were lost in the waters of the South Atlantic on 15 November.

    The photo was taken from one of the helicopters that accompanied the ship.

    It was then published on the Argentine armed forces’ Twitter account.
