Platon Alexiades Posted July 7, 2020 Report Share Posted July 7, 2020 Hi,The Barletta wreck previously reported to have been HMS Regent has been examined by Italian divers led by Fabio Bisciotti on Sunday 28th June. It has now been identified as the Italian submarine Giovanni Bausan which was converted as the oil depot G.R.S.251 and used as a target by the Allied Air Forces in June 1944.The divers were:Fabio BisciottiAlessandro AulicinoMichele FavaronStefania BellessoRuggero NanulaPasquale BailonPietro AmorusoI expect they will soon publish some photos but the wreck is in a very poor shape.The wreck of HMS Regent is still to be found but the team is determined to look for it and hopefully they will succeed.All the best,Platon Alexiades Francesco De Domenico, Nereo Castelli, sandokan and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
