UB57.. Can you help? I am trying to find information on UB57, I believe it was commanded by Ober Lt Johannes Loks. I believed it sink the Kyarra off the Dorset coast in 1918, and then went on to other missions. Unfortunately it was sunk in the North Sea after hitting a German mine in August 1918. If anyone has more information or photographs of UB57 or can confirm it sank the Kyarra, please contact me at terence.rogers@virgin.net
