To commemorate the event, a local distillery has produced 12,000 bottles of Yellow Submarine whisky and presented a case to the captain of the minesweeper. The unmanned submarine was found by John Baker when he was fishing for lobsters in May, floating about three miles from the Mull of Oa. The vessel was kept on display in the garden of his brother-in-law Harold Hastie, who helped him bring it to dry land.
