The frame is about 50 meters in length
In the North of France discovered the wreckage of a German submarine during the First world war.
The metal frame is about 50 meters in length, which has long been lost in silt, exposed in coastal waters near the town of wissant due to currents and strong undertow. Historians tell us that the submarine is stuck in shallow water in July 1917 because of a miscalculation in navigation.
“She was stranded here just because it was a destroyer. He had to lay mines. But to do this it was necessary to approach the shore, because in the open sea from England to France were strained network to combat submarines. The submarine came too close to the beach,” explains local guide Vincent Schmitt.
It is known that when the submarine ran aground, crew evacuated. The submarine blew up, so she went to the enemy. The noise attracted the attention of the military patrol, which soon delayed the German sailors on the shore.
