When the British diver Mark Harris has explored the site, he was totally amazed. These classic cars were carried by the British merchant navy ship from Glasgow to Alexandria, Egypt before it was bombed at the Red Sea during the Second World War.
Meanwhile, amongst the relics of the ship on the sea bed are other war equipment such as aircraft parts, radio equipment as well as wellington boots. “As divers, we feel the ship’s wound. Most of us respect the site. That is why that Wellington boot was still there after all this time, and not looted. Here was something easily removable, that had been left to rest in peace.” said Mr. Harris, of Esher, Surrey. (Via: DailyMail)
Motorbikes at the bottom of the sea after the British Merchant Navy ship sank when it was bombed by two German planes in 1941.
The vessel has lain 30 metres beneath the surface of the Red Sea for 73 years.
The wreck was lost to the depths of the sea until it was discovered in 1956 by legendary aquatic explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
There were 41 crew members aboard in total when the ship went down during the Second World War.
