    Default Any U-Boats near you?

    I live on the New Jersey Shore, next to the town of Point Pleasant. About 20 years ago divers found the wreckage of the German submarine U 869. I know U-boats were up and down the American East Coast, some going into New York Harbor, and another instance of a U-boat sinking a vessel in the St. Lawrence river in Canada. Does anybody have any sunken subs near them? ( or of any country for that matter )

    British archaeologists recently discovered more than 40 German U-boats sunk during World War I off the coast of England. Now they are in a race against time to learn the secrets hidden in their watery graves.

    And there are plenty more around our coast, off the coast of Ireland, can't remember where now, I seen on a tv program, all the captured U-Boats were take far out to sea, and blown up,

    That's pretty cool. I imagine they are deteriorating badly at this point in time. The wreck of the U 869 cost the life of a diver when they found it. Pretty dangerous work.

    If you are ever in the Chicago area, the Museum of Science, and Industry has the U-505 on display, you can walk through it. (for a small price of course)

    Hi garm1and & tankgeezer,

    No swimmer or diver, but the feeling you must get when you dive down to them, must out of this world. I would love to see Chicago, and the Museum of Science, but I don't think I will ever have the luck to do.

    Sorry the link didn't work, you can search U-505 Chicago Science, and industry Museum, maybe that will get you to the site. There were some pics of the interior.

    Operation Deadlight was the allied sinking of the majority of captured U-Boats after the war.

    Operation Regenbogen was the order for German Military Vessels to be sunk on 30th April 1945 (later rescinded by Donitz)

    For the fates of many and the locations known this site is pretty comprehensive for German U-Boats

    Brown Bess was a partner whom none could despise
    An out-spoken, flinty-lipped, brazen-faced jade,
    With a habit of looking men straight in the eyes
    At Blenheim and Ramillies fops would confess
    They were pierced to the heart by the charms of Brown Bess.

    Was Operation Deadlight and effort to prevent the Soviets from getting u-boat technology and tips? I read recently the U.S. Navy sank captured Japanese aircraft carrier subs like the (recently found) I-400 for that very reason as the Russians were clamoring to see the big subs under treaty obligations...

    Under the naval agreement with the Soviets they were getting allocated some of the Submarines anyway, France wanted some but the Soviets vetoed it so Britain gave them most of its allocation as they had already tested them and had no further use, the US got sneaked two type XXI early by Britain for testing and did not find them particularly good overall.

    Operation Deadlight was the sinking off the coast of Ireland of all the unallocated Submarines held by Britain (100+ if I re-call)

    I find it fascinating that they didn't scrap the subs for metals rather than sink them. But was certainly easier and maybe more economical in the end...
