A bit of a long term mystery as this ship is not listed in most shipwreck index’s or lost shipping lists. She is charted and has a brief description as an unknown in Dive Kent. Her identity was only discovered when the Bell was raised on 16 Aug 2008.
A late casualty of WW1 the freighter Luna struck a drifting mine off of the Goodwin Sands and sunk on 21 Aug 1919.
On a quite firm sandy seabed in 50m of water the wreck is upright but very badly damaged on the port side from the mine strike; she stands up to 8m proud with the decks tilted down towards the damaged side.
The bridge telegraph has also now been recovered and any dive needs to be planned as a 50m dive as there is limited areas of interest to see on the upper parts.
