The Indonesian Navy released a video of the crew of the KRI Nanggala 402 submarine which sank off the coast of Bali, killing all 53 men on board. It quickly became viral on Indonesian social networks and for good reason. We see the submariners singing “Sampai Jumpa”, a popular Indonesian song whose title means “goodbye”.
The video particularly moved the population, although it was recorded several weeks ago as a farewell message to the previous commander of the Indonesian submarine forces, whose successor took office in early March, the spokesperson said. word of the Indonesian army Djawara Whimbo.
“I’m not ready to miss you”
The late Heri Oktavian submarine commander is part of the group gathered around one of the submariners playing guitar. “I’m not ready to miss you, I’m not ready to leave you,” the band sings. “I wish you the best”.
The German-built submarine, one of five in the Indonesian fleet, disappeared from radar on Wednesday as it was scheduled to participate in exercises off Bali. The Indonesian armed forces announced on Sunday that they had found the submersible broken into three pieces by more than 800 meters deep and that the entire crew had perished.
