HMS Royal Oak was sunk by U47. 800 of the crew died and it is a war grave. I don't have the exact position.

I'd recommend anybody planning a trip to go through Orkney Divers - they may not be the best, I dont know, but I had nothing to complain about after 10 days up there. In fact, I was very sorry to leave all those lads and lasses behind. The Murray Arms Hotel in St. Margarets Hope is the best pub in the Orkneys (my personal opinion of course)

Thinking of diving here in August 98, what recommendations do seasoned divers have. Presently dive in cold water in Ontario Canada temp 45-70 F

text any info on the battleship sunk at scapa flow by U47? The wreck isn't listed, or was it salvaged by the Royal Navy?

The Dresden lies on her port side. Access to the innards is unrestricted as the Deck has seperated from the hull just aft of the hawser pipe. This means that the bow section can be penetrated although the deck hatches lie shut.
