I came across this and recall hearing about this many years ago. A well kept secret for a long time from WII.




An unmanned submarine has recorded some of the most detailed images of two American ships that sank off the coast of England during World War II, according to the Massachusetts company that surveyed the wreckage to mark the disaster’s 70th anniversary.

Bourne, Mass.-based Hydroid says they are the first high-definition sonar images of two ships sunk by German forces during Exercise Tiger, a rehearsal for the D-Day invasion. The torpedo attack on April 28, 1944, claimed the lives of 749 U.S. soldiers and sailors.

Wow....I had no idea that sonar could produce such high definition images. They're almost like photographs! Really amazing.

Actually we've known about Operation Tiger for some time now. Absolute tragedy - but the lessons learnt were valuable.
