Work by SSSUK member Ricardo Preve led to the return to Italy of a submariner's remains, in a ceremony at Port Sudan on 19th April 2018. Carlo Acefalo died in 1940 on the barren Red Sea island of Barra Musa Khebir after escaping from a sinking submarine with fellow crew members (see Sudan Studies No. 53).
