A historical documentary followed by recent underwater footage.
The SS Thistlegorm was a British armed Merchant Navy ship built in 1940 by Joseph Thompson & Son in Sunderland, England. She was armed with a 4.7-inch (120mm) anti-aircraft gun and a heavy calibre machine gun attached after construction to the stern of the ship. She was sunk on 6 October 1941 near Ras Muhammad in the Red Sea and is now a well known dive site.
The massive explosion blew much of her midships superstructure away and makes the wreck very accessible to divers. The depth of around 30 m (100 feet) at its deepest is ideal for diving without the need for specialist equipment and training.

Die Thistlegorm war ein britisches Frachtschiff, das am 6. Oktober 1941 im Zweiten Weltkrieg von einem Heinkel Bombenflugzeug der Deutschen Luftwaffe im nördlichen Roten Meer in der Nähe der Nordspitze der Sinai-Halbinsel versenkt wurde und heute ein beliebtes Tauchziel ist.
