Jan Hubert in Danish magazine

Danish magazine Sportsdykkeren is running my story about the converted German trawler M-1104 Jan Hubert in their October 2012 issue. Found as late as January 2011, the wreck is in pristine condition.



Posted on Oct 25, 2012

Jan Hubert, or M-1104 as she was known during her short time serving in the German Kriegsmarine, was a trawler which was converted into a minelayer shortly before WWII.

On July 8, 1941 she collided with another ship in the convoy she was leading, and sank. Danish divers can now read the full story about M-1104 Jan Hubert in the October 2012 issue of Sportsdykkeren magazine.

Pristine wreck

The wreck was found off the coast of Søgne in southern Norway as late as January 2011, and is in pristine condition.

Several artefacts has been salvaged from the wreck in agreement with the owner, to avoid treasure hunting. Many of these were displayed in an exhibition which opened to the date 70 years after the sinking on July 8, 1941.
