The Great Lusitania

The Cunarder 'Lusitania' was struck by a german torpedo and sank nose down in just 18 minutes. 1,200 perished (many forget the four germans locked up in her brig) She also had a strong list to starboard, this coupled with a mysterious second explosion caused her third funnel to fall over right ontop of two lifeboats being lowered, killing the occupants. The wreck today is disfigured, either by the strong current and fishing nets, or by another mysterious reason.
