Having completed the Britannic mission, U-Boat Navigator team went on with the underwater research and participated in the expedition devoted to another WW1 wreck, S/S Burdigala.
The stories of two ships were tied up forever by dramatic events of the World War I. November of 1916 turned into a tragedy for both of them. Burdigala was the first to strike a mine near the island of Kea. In just a week Britannic followed her path, striking a mine from the same mine field, laid by German sub U-73.
“We didn’t just reach our initial goals, but contributed to other related projects and set objectives for further research. We are very pleased with the results of this expedition”, – Eugeny Tomashov, U-Boat Malta Ltd. director sums up.
