Contributed by gabriele

Good morning, my name is Gabriele, I am a Technical Diver from Italy. I live in Sardinia Island (italy), last summer while I was diving I have found a shipwreck off shore "capo ferro" (North sardinia); I am quite sure it is the WWII bangoor class minesweeper j126 "felixstowe"; I already have few movies and pics, token during my dives on the site. I am writing an article for some italian & international magazines, I wonder if you could be interested in help me with some histoic information about the ship (pics, story of the ship, etc). Of course I will include your museum in my "thanks" list on the article. thank you for your help, looking forward to hearing back from you best regards Gabriele gabrydiver@yahoo.com

Additional Notes

Felixstowe Museum have been in contact by email and the situation is ongoing. The museum hopes to receive photographs and diagrams of the wreck in due course.
