Although it is owned by me privately, it has a 4-inch anti-aircraft gun, a machine gun when it was recruited to carry out military duty. The ship laid anchor at what was thought a safe location north of the Straits of Gubal, today known as Shag Rock. It was to proceed through the Suez Canal upon receiving instructions.
In the first hour of 6th October 1941, the Thidtlegrom sank, split into two parts after being hit by 2 bombs from a German long-range bomber. The hit only blew a hole in the port side of Hold no. 5 but then cargo tank ammunition ignited, causing the bulk of the damage. And the ship sank and took its final resting place, 30 meters away on the sandy sea bottom. Before sinking, all the crew of the ship escaped with the exception of nine people. where she lies upright with her stern section separated from the main body by 20m. The ship is largely intact except for the impact area but the split hull reveals the invaluable cargo, where trucks, motorbikes, a train, and even Wellington boots can be seen. You will discover all these sights during your Egypt day tours.
The cannon is still in good condition and the place of the explosion is full of defenders. You can see him in the Red Sea and you must have an excellent diver with you because it is at a depth of 30 meters.
It can be said that it is the most sought-after diving in the world, that you discover during your Egypt Luxury tours. It is thought that the Sinai Peninsula's Thistlegorm is the most frequently divided site in the world that is included in our Egypt Easter tours.
