HMS D5 off Lowestoft, Suffolk : Archaeological Services in Relation to Marine Protection, Undesignated Site Assessment
By Paulo Croce
The assessment of the site was undertaken as part of a two stage investigation. Stage one consisted of a geophysical survey over the location of the wreck site of HMS D5 and stage two consisted of a diver survey of the site.
The geophysical survey aimed to confirm the presence of the wreck of a submarine at this location and inform the diving investigation. The diving investigation aimed to confirm the identification of the wreck as HMS D5 and resulted in a video and photographic survey of the wreck site. The site has been assessed against the criteria required for designation under the Protection of Wrecks Act 1973.
