It's in amazing condition considering how long it's been down there, the ladder looks like new.

On our last recent expedition to the Royal navy HMS P32 submarine wreck in Tripoli - Libya.

The loss of the HMS P32 caused a sensation when it was reported hitting mine off Tripoli Libya on August 18, 1941 as it preparing to attack a convoy.

in which 30 submariners lost their lives in a disaster explosion that remains shrouded in mystery.

Aware that the site remains the last resting-place of the crew, our team of 4 divers, led by Mohamed Arebi, took nothing from the site other than video footage. The video has been investigated to solve the mystery behind the cause of the explosion accident since 18 august 1941.

Diving to such great depths requires the use of special gas mixtures and is fraught with complexities. We are the only Libyan diving team qualified and able to employ this technology.

Arebi diving team work hard and make extensive history research on the U-class British submarine, a remarkable discovery when several parts of the P32 submarine s bow (port side) shows the hull steel were twisted toward outside as an evidences that the explosion appear to come from inside the submarine, could be torpedo malfunction !!

As well reference to the Lieutenant Commander( one of the two survivors) Abdy s report of March 1943, in which he sets out the circumstances of the loss Saying: I have the impression that the explosion appeared to come from inside the submarine but I have no proof at all.

Thanks
Arebi

Nice photos Arebi, shame about the nets. Any plans to cut them away on future dives, or is this out of the question?

Abslutely BRILLIANT read.

Well done, and very impressive.

How lovely to see someone not just diving for the pictures but to also look into the history to why the wreck is there.

My hat is off to you Sir, and i look forward to seeing more pictures.


Thankyou!
