Dive Site: The War Helmet

Location: 50°37.38N; 00°36.50W

Description: 8184 ton British steamer

Length: 135 metres (443 feet)

Depth: 27 metres (89 feet)

Visibility: 10 metres (30 feet)

Rating: ****

Fortunately the crew were saved from this First World War torpedo casualty before it sank. The wreck now lies upright on the sea floor with the bow facing northwest. The engine room is easy to locate and there are three prominent boilers. The wreck is quite flattened from the stern to its middle, but the masts are still upright. This is an interesting wreck to dive. Launch is best from Brighton or Littlehampton.
