A GROUP of submariners raised £400 for a Second World War-era submarine.

Thirty of the sailors from HMS Sultan collected donations during a series of events this month to commemorate submariners who lost their lives.

HMS Alliance, based at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport is in the final stages of a £6.7m regeneration project.
