Late Sunday evening Felix joined me on Dora Mac and Monday morning we headed out in the archipelago for some days of wreckdiving again.
Our target this time is the German ship Ingrid Horn that sank after a collision in dense fog 1917. Since this was the end of WW-1 Ingrid Horn was bound for the southern exit of the Stockholm archipelago to join a German convoy heading home under protection from accompanying warships.
Being short of kerosene the navlights were not lit and the Swedish ship Bergvik didn´t see her through the fog and ran the bow into the side of Ingrid Horn.
The consequence was a several meters big whole on the side of the hull that rapidly brought Ingrid Horn down.Only one crewmember of seventeen survived.
