U 45 found

June 29th, 2017

Amazingly, in a litle more than a year since the Rosguill put divers onto one of the Uboats which had help sink the Justicia (UB124) we found and had 2 dives on U 45. U 45 was sunk by the British submarine D7 in September 1917 using one of her stern torpedoes.

The U boat is broken 10m or so forward of the conning tower, no doubt due to the force of the explosion and the 88mm deck gun is missing. Also of interest is the depth which makes this find attainable for the majority of Technical divers.
