This Belgian vessel has the distinction of being the first casualty of WW2 when she struck a mine on 15th September 1939 - just two weeks after the war started. She was en route from Antwerp when British Authorities requested she diverted to Weymouth for inspection.
Her bow is still recognisable and stands 7m above the seabed. Salvage work has reduced the stern to a tangled web of wreckage.
