Divers visit WW II Bell Island shipwreck site to lay wreath
A crew of divers from Conception Bay South, N.L., visited the site of a Second World War shipwreck on Monday to lay a wreath in memory of the sailors who perished.
The divers were with Ocean Quest, a company that hosts underwater tours around Conception Bay.
A wreath was laid in the underwater ceremony at the site of the Bell Island shipwrecks, just off the St. John's area, where 29 men were killed when a German U-boat sank the SS Saganaga and the SS Lord Strathcona in 1942.
Later that year, another German vessel sank two more ships, the SS Rose Castle and the French vessel PLM 27, killing another 40 men.
