Divers Discover World War One Sub Off Lothian Coast, Scotland

Date: 1/10/2006

An intact First World War submarine has been discovered in deep waters off Eyemouth. Divers from Edinburgh and South Queensferry Sub Aqua Club were part of an expedition that found the wreck virtually unscathed despite lying 200ft down on the floor of the North Sea for more than 85 years. It is thought to be a British submarine known as the H11, which was lost in 1920 while under tow. The divers are awaiting confirmation from the Royal Navy that the submarine was not manned before they carry out further investigations of the torpedo-carrying vessel.
