Spomin na Malti

archive – Diving NewsRemembrance in Malta

At precisely 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, scuba divers placed a poppy on the X127 wreck in Marsamxette Harbour, Malta. The WW2 British lighter sank at the spot 75 years ago, after being bombed during an air attack on 6 March, 1942.

Placing the poppy on the 24m-long wreck, a popular dive-site, was the idea of Simon Hewart, a co-owner of Scuba Life Malta in Mellieha.

Before becoming a scuba inštruktor Simon spent 24 years in the British Army, serving on operational tours in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan and leaving as a Warrant Officer Class 2.

Velik mak je bil pridobljen v Združenem kraljestvu iz stojnice, kjer so delali člani kraljeve britanske legije Surrey.

O X127 je leta 1915 zgradil Goole Shipbuilding & Repairing v Yorkshiru.

She was used in WWI for transporting water and also for withdrawing troops during the Gallipoli campaign, and during WW2 was used as a fuel lighter in Malta, where she was unofficially known as the Talbot, carrying shale oil for the 10th Submarine Flotilla.

Razbitina je preprosta za potop z obale, leži na pobočju ob otoku Manoel s premcem na 5 m in krmo na 22 m.

»Mak naj bi bil prvotno postavljen na razbitino rušilca ​​HMS Maori, vendar razmere tistega dne niso bile ugodne,« je povedal fotograf Simon Apps.
