A joint expedition between a Polish group, formed to search for the wreck of the famous Polish world war 2 submarine "ORP Orzeł ", and a danish team behind the "Sea war museum" /the company JD Contractor, has found the wreck of the British ww1 submarine HMS L10.

(wikipedia link to HMS L10: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_L10 ) The team also surveyed the wrecks of 2 german torpedo boats, located close by the wreck of the L10 (1 of which was sunk by the L10).

 

A local danish TV station has made a short video about the expedition with some nice footage of the dive the teams made on the L10: Mainly danish language being spoken but also a short interview, in english, with 1 of the polish divers.

The original goal of the expedition was to find/survey the wreck of the "Orp Orzeł"  (and, if possible, the wreck of the dutch submarine "Hnlms 0 13", which is thought to have been lost in the same area as the orzel.) Sadly the teams had to cut short their expedition, after surveying the HMS L10, due to poor weather: i think they intend to try again, come may (if i heard right).

 

If you search Facebook for "Santi Odnaleźć Orła" you should find the polish team (their page has some good images of their dive on the L10).
