She operated across the North Sea, English Channel and off the Spanish coast with the Flanders Flotilla destroying 5 ships, the last of which off the Azores ten days before she herself was sunk. Early on the morning of the 29th August 1918 the submarine was making her way past Folkestone when she was detected by the Folkestone Gate hydrophone Listening Station at 3.05am. The operator remotely detonated the line of mines as she crossed them and she was sunk. Only Ramien, his navigator and 6 men reached the surface.
Before the morning was over the Royal Navy had buoyed the craft and Commander Damants RN Divers were inside the wreck within 2 hours retrieving charts and code books.
Diving: The Seabed generally at 25m, the bow has a bit of a scour under it and you can get 28m there, the deck is at 20m with the conning tower rising up to about 17m. The periscope rises above that to about 15m or so.
The stern is blown off and it is a short swim to its rear, both props have been salvaged. The pressure hull is intact, however, the tip of the bow has broken off and you have a large empty box like area open there. You can see 4 bow torpedo tubes just before that.
The hatches are open, where the crew bailed out and the Tin Openers (RN Divers) went in.
