Good afternoon.
Non-diving forum new boy (old man actually) with a request.
I am researching my village war memorial here in Lancashire, and one of our casualties was lost on board HMS Abdiel when she was mined in Taranto Harbour, Italy, on 10th September, 1943.
I understand that she is used as a diving site and would like to know if anyone can give me a map reference, or an 'X' marks the spot on a map, as to where she lies?
I also understand that her bell was removed some time ago and wonder if anyone knows where it has been placed.
Many Thanks
Stewart McLoughlin
