Gibel Hamam

Depth 31m, depth to top of wreck is 24m.

A small british steam ship built at Newcastle in 1895. On September 14 1918, while on passage to France from Swansea with a cargo of coal, she was hit by a torpedo by UB-103.

Twenty one crew, including the captain, were lost, only one man surviving – the Coxswain.

The wreck now lies upright on a sandy sea bed, her stern intact. Amidships, where the torpedo hit on her port side, there is much damage, as you would expect! Her boiler is partly exposed.
