Yesterday I finally got to dive a special wreck that I have been keen to dive since its discovery in 2008, the German coastal submarine U 12. She was patrolling the east coast of Scotland in March 1915 when after sinking a 1,000-ton British steamship carrying a cargo of coal she was hunted down by three British destroyers. The following day, Aerial, Acheron and Attack sighted her on the surface and attacked. As she made to dive she was rammed near the bow. She then resurfaced and was engaged by British guns.
She sank with the loss of 20 crew and her wreck now rests upright in 50 metres in the Firth of Forth, North Sea.
Here’s the video of the dive;
