South China Sea

The sinking of Prince of Wales and Repulse was a Second World War naval engagement that took place north of Singapore, off the east coast of Malaya. The British Royal Navy battleship HMS Prince of Wales and battlecruiser HMS Repulse were sunk by land-based bombers and torpedo bombers of the Imperial Japanese Navy on 10 December 1941

Diving the HMS Repulse and Prince of Wales is truly a humbling experience, knowing that 840 sailors were lost: 513 in Repulse and 327 in Prince Of Wales. There are constant reminders of the savegry of war.
