Dorset Echo: Divers remember sunken First World War ship

Dorset Echo: Divers remember sunken First World War ship. “As part of the centenary of the First World War, different projects have been set up to commemorate those involved in the war effort. One of which is a four-year project by the Maritime Archaeology Trust. The project, which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, coincides with the centenary to raise the profile of the fallen ships in and around our seas, rivers and estuaries. South coast wreck sites, which include merchant and naval ships, passenger, troop and hospital ships, ports, wharfs, buildings and foreshore hulks, have often been unrecognised…. The final result of this project will be an accessible database which will provide all the information regarding the shipwrecks.”
