  2. While diving on HMAS Perth in March 2015 we successfully traversed the entire 171m wreck both inside and outside. We have complied the videos we took during our dives to show the damage that has been done to her, both when she was initially struck by the torpedoes, which caused her to sink, and more recently by salvagers.

    The wreck lies on her port side in approximately 36m of water off the cost of Jakarta after she was sunk in 1942 during the Sunda Strait Battle. This video shows the insides of the first and second deck, showing the condition of the wreck in it's present state.

    Carrying extra equipment to film, while swimming through the wreck meant we had to be even more aware of our surroundings and each other. Here we follow Leon as he films the HMAS Perth.

The celebrated capital ships HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse had sailed into port on the 2nd of December, 1941 with a flotilla of ships as part of Force Z to intimidate the Japanese from ever launching an invasion.

    The Repulse was a Renown-class battlecruiser of the British Royal Navy built during the First World War. As part of a fleet of ships meant to prevent a show of force by the Japanese, the reverse happened. On 10 December, when the Fleet was just 60 miles east-north-east of Kuantan, the Repulse was attacked by high-level bombers at 11:00am. Despite fending off the initial attack, the Repulse was sunk with the "unsinkable" HMS Prince of Wales...
