The seas around the South coast hold the secrets of numerous wrecks with D-Day connections. In recent years Southsea Sub-Aqua Club have been investigating these wrecks to find more about them and how they came to rest on the sea bed. From Centaur Tanks and armoured Bulldozers to Tank Landing Craft and Mulberry Harbours the tragic events behind their sinking have been part of the fascinating story now told by the project leaders. The diving team have nominated a number of these wrecks for Historic Wreck protection.

As featured in the BBC Coast programme and the D-Day Museum Landing Craft display.

The presentation will be held at the Southsea Sub-Aqua Club HQ at Fort Widley, on Portsdown Hill.  There should be ample free parking and refreshments will be available at the Club bar.
