    • Omaha Beach, Normandy


      from Vantage Travel Added 0 0 0

      Vantage travelers visit two sites on Omaha Beach: Pointe du Hoc, a sheer cliff rising 328 feet up from the Channel, and the American Cemetery and Memorial. Pointe du Hoc had become a German stronghold, and as Allied soldiers exited their boats and waded to shore, the Nazis fired down on them. Brave US Army rangers scaled the cliff and successfully defended against German counterattack by seizing the artillery pieces. Two days after the invasion, the U.S. Army established the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, overlooking Omaha Beach. It was the first American cemetery in Europe in World War II, and, at 172.5 acres, it remains the largest American cemetery on the continent. In all, 9,387 Americans were laid to rest there, most of whom lost their lives on D-Day.

      • Dive on the wreck of the clipper ship Smyrna


        from Hamish Morrison Added 4 0 0

        This is the only known wreck of a clipper ship sunk in the English Channel. It went down quickly after a collision with the SS Moto in 1888 & now lies in roughly 55m, some 21 miles south of the Needles. Visibility in this area is generally excellent, although on this occasion it was less that great.

          • Dive on the wreck of SS South Western


            from Hamish Morrison Added 3 0 0

            This wreck is almost certainly the South Western, but it is some way away from it's recorded position of sinking. Size, area of damage & recovered artefacts all suggest very strongly that it is the South Western, which was torpedoed in March 1918. Survivors report that the impact was just forward of the forward of the bridge, & the U-boat log says the Fo'c'sle exploded. Only 6 of the 32 crew & passengers aboard survived the sinking. Today the wreck lies in 38m of water, with the front 1/3 of the wreck, at least, missing. In fact forward of the boilers there is only scattered wreckage with nothing substantial visible.

                • Dive on the wreck of U-90


                  from Hamish Morrison Added 255 0 0

                  The U-90 was a WW1 boat that was surrendered at the end of hostilities & sunk while under tow to Bo'ness where she was to be broken up in 1918. She lies in about 35m, with a 45º list to starboard & is pretty much intact. The two large deck guns, one mounted forward of the conning tower & one aft are an impressive sight. The tower has several periscopes visible & they look to be in remarkably good condition considering their time under water. At the stern it is possible to see under the wreck with the starboard propellor and prop shaft clear or the shingle sea bed. Rounding the stern the port prop can be seen. The spinner from this screw has been removed. The bow is probably the least intact part of the wreck & the torpedo tubes are exposed.
