Russian sailor admits he killed WW British frogman, clearing up Cold War mystery





One of the Cold War's most baffling mysteries has been solved after an elderly Russian man admitted to slitting the throat of British frogman fifty years ago.

Commander Lionel "Buster" Crabb disappeared while spying on a Soviet warship in 1956.

The vessel was en route to Portsmouth Harbour, bringing Soviet leaders to Britain for talks.

At the time, the Navy feared that Cdr Crabb had drowned in the nearby Stokes Bay.

But several months later, the diver's headless corpse was found floating along the coast near Chichester.

Now the final moments of Cdr Crabb's life have been put together after a retired Russian sailor told a documentary he needed to clear his conscience before he died.
