HI Ian. I think you may have a point. I cannot get into the archive at the moment to compare our information so I have temporarily put that one into our private zone pending our return to normal working. We have other ship wreck photos and I might be able to track it down.Many thanks for your help Christine Waterman
I don’t believe the wreckage is that of the Pruessen. She lays below the low water mark. The wreck is that of a merchant ship that caught fire and was run aground below the search light battery adjacent to Dover harbour
