Some of the Navy personnel serving on the Australian Submarine AE2 were on temporary or permanent transfer from the Royal Navy to the Royal Australian Navy. As these personnel served on an Australian Ship (Boat) at the time of capture they are recorded as Australian Prisoners of War. Some of the AE2 RAN original crew were transferred to the British Boat E7 and were consequently captured by the Turks. They are listed as part of the AE2 crew.
