DBD 03-02-2022: Tank

The SS Empire Heritage, one of the largest ships sunk during WWII, went down with a massive load of tanks, supplies, and 112 of the 163 people on board off the northern coast of Ireland. “Years of wave action has smashed the superstructure,” says underwater photographer Steve Jones. “Sherman tanks lie entangled with trucks across the wreck.” At 225 feet deep, the SS Empire Heritage is only for seasoned technical divers.
