28 Jan What happened?
The waters off Skelmorlie on the Ayrshire coast (Scotland) have been suggested as the site of an unidentified U-Boat wreck from World War II. Museum records give the location as N55° 52′ W4° 54′. There are no confirmed reports of the wreck, or the circumstances surrounding it, although several elderly residents of Dunoon have spoken of the day during World War II, when the Royal Navy dropped a number of depth charges into the waters of the Firth of Clyde south of the Cloch boom. Unfortunately, accounts vary as to date and detail, therefore we can only refer to the stories rather than give confirmed details. Dates vary from November 1939, to February 1940.
