2nd. of Nov., 2004
time was 4th. of May, 1945. The total capitulation of the German
Military Forces was just about to take place, when the German
Torpedoboat, S103 was on its way from Svendborg to Flensburg with
32 men onboard. Through a hole in the clouds, a british warplane
discovered the S103, east of Mommark (Als).
Soon S103 was under attack from several british warplanes, that
had orders to shoot everything down that moved on the sea. Rockets
and canonfire from the planes destroyed the 40mm canon onboard
the S103, almost at once and a little sooner, the engines was
damaged. Without beeing able to steer and defend the ship against
the british planes, S103 found it's desterny and sank. Only 12
of the 32 men survived. They were picked up by a small fisherboat
and transported to Mommark.
we find the wreck in a right up standing position, at a depth
of 35 meters. It's about 30 meter in length, so it's not a big
ship, but sure an interesting experience to dive.
