My visit to the Hermina Wreck

Richard Hughes and his Diving Club  http://www.reddragondivers.org.uk invited me out to the wreck of the Hermina on Saturday 19th September at the lowest tide for the year.

After writing about the Hermina, I saw for the the first time the engine block that had been there for 89 years [1920].

It was above the water and in the exact position indicated in the book [page 26 – Hermina – the morning after]

We were joined by Mike and Jackie Williamson who were moored nearby and used their tender to ferry me around the engine. http://www.wordaid.co.uk/

    Hi Phil, Richard just passed me a link to your blog. I’ve spent much of this afternoon putting a report and photos on the dive club website: http://www.reddragondivers.org.uk
    Just click on the calendar/news button in the index and it should take you there.
    It was nice meeting you. Richard says you’ve written a book about the Charterhouse. Let me have the details and I’ll add it to the dive club website.
    Regards,
    Jackie
