Family members hold photographs of Marine Colonel Heri Setiawan, commander of the Navy’s KRI Nanggala (402) submarine that went missing off the coast of Bali on April 21 during a training exercise, at their family home in Depok on April 24, 2021. The video, filmed a few weeks before the KRI Nanggala 402 went down with all hands lost, shows some of the 53-strong crew singing “Sampai Jumpa”, an Indonesian hit whose title means “Goodbye.”

A video appearing to show the crew was shared by Erix Soekamti, the original singer of “Sampai Jumpa,” on Instagram on Sunday.
