Ship Wreck Submarine I-1

On 29 January 1943, this Japanese J1 submarine encountered the New Zealand minesweepers Kiwi and Moa. Unable to penetrate the I1's armour with their deck guns, the minesweepers rammed and chased her to shallow water, eventually forcing her to run aground on the reef at Kamimbo Bay.
