Sir: "Revealed at last: the images someone did not want you to see" (3 December) refers to an official cover-up of the sinking of HMS Thetis.

By my recollection this is hardly correct. In 1939 I was 12 yet can remember vividly the newspaper reports of the tragedy, which happened during the early trials of the submarine off the east coast of Anglesey. The photograph you publish shows clearly the same or a similar image to the one I remember, which was widely published at the time.
