Dive Safari – Day #3

  • 24 September 2009

Welcome to our second day at sea (the first was 0)!

We visited the wreck of the SS Thistlegorm, a British freighter sunk by two German He111 bombers on 6 October 1941. I’ve been here before, but it’s always very special. You can still explore the two layers of cargo holds containing Morris jeeps, trucks, Lee Enfield MK III rifles, boots, crates, cables and boxes. The wreck is a relic of the Second World War. Sadly many divers forget that. Even worse, thieves raid the wreck and take souvenirs with them. The site is a grave and should be treated with respect.

Shutdown now. Diving down almost 30 metres and negotiating currents fosters tiredness.

Sorry, the comment form is now closed.
