On February 1st 1914, the sailing barque ‘Hera’ foundered and sank near Nare Head in Cornwall, UK. To commemorate the event, divers attached a plaque to the wreck last week in memoriam to the 19 souls who lost their lives.
It had originally been arranged to be placed on the wreck on February 1st of this year, the 100th Anniversary of the sinking. Mark Milburn of Atlantic Scuba, who arranged the event with Father Doug Robins of Veryan Parish, said that the weather had been so unfavourable that this was the first chance to dive the Hera.
Mr Milburn said, “We had arranged to dive the wreck on the 100th anniversary of the sinking, when many dive boats were to be on site to pay their respects. The weather has been so bad, we have had to wait 6 weeks to get on site”. Mr Milburn also said “With the recent storms it is easy to see why a sailing ship would have come to grief all those years ago”.
Atlantic Scuba is a dive centre based at Mabe near Falmouth, in Cornwall. For more information about Atlantic Scuba, visit www.atlanticscuba.co.uk.
