Notes :

There are two wrecks together here and both are quite close so it is possible to do both on the one dive. The second is a salvage barge that sank on 1968/11/15. The f2 is intactish and is broken amidships her mast is on the bed and is semi-visable. Her fore gun is still there and there is a hatch behind it with other bits of machinery in.. If you put you back to the starboard side and fin of at 90 degrees you will find the salvage barge about 30m away, you can see it on a good day. In the barge hold is a machine gun and other odds and sods
