HMHS Glenart Castle

Posted by Eva O'Grady on 11 April 2018

The HMHS Glenart Castle was a hospital ship sunk in the Bristol Channel by a U-boat torpedo on the 26th February 1918 with the loss of 162 hands, medical staff and patients. 

DMS Diving is planning a memorial dive to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of this sinking. 

The HMHS Glenart Castle lies in between 55 & 73m of water so this is a highly technical dive requiring both an experienced bottom team and surface support divers. 

We encourage all club members at the level of Sports Diver and above with cold water experience to apply to take part in this expedition as part of the surface team. As well as the expedition itself members of the support team will be expected to attend for a practice dive to prepare for their part in the dive.
