On 7th June, Landing Craft LCT 427 was on the way back to Portsmouth after successfully delivering a cargo of tanks to Gold Beach as part of the D-Day landings. Unfortunately she never made it, as just 4 miles from shore she collided with the battleship HMS Rodney and was sliced into 2 pieces. All 12 crew were killed.
Divers from Southsea Sub Aqua Club have located the two pieces of the wreck. They are several hundred metres apart at a depth of around 30 metres in a busy shipping channel that is normally out of bounds for diving, but the club was given special permission by Portsmouth Harbour Master.
