Built in 1902 the 1,091 Ton SS Unity was torpedoed off of Dungeness by UB57 on 2 May 1918 whilst sailing from Newhaven to Calais with Military Ordinance Stores. 12 of the crew were killed, the Captain was amongst the survivors.
Diving: This is a fantastic wreck being upright and intact in a max depth of 40m and a general depth to the decks of 32-35m. The wreck does not look to have been swept and most of the deck fixtures and fittings are very easy to recognise.
There are breaks at both ends and cargo has spilled out, you can travel the wreck at 32m and drop down to 35m in these breaks. To get deeper you need to drop into the scour at the side or stern.
The wreck teams with sealift including Lobster, Crab, Conga Eels, Cuttlefish and there are lots of Scallops on the seabed in this area.
