U772,

 German U772 was a type VII-C U-boat sunk by Allied aircraft in 1944, hours after it had torpedoed a Liberty ship.
The torpedo broke this vessel, the Black Hawk, in two, the stern sinking only a few miles away and the bow being beached in Worbarrow Bay.

Lies 1 mile from the Black Hawk wreck

It is now thought that HMCS Calgary was responsible the sinking of the U772

She lies upright with a slight list to the port and is fairly intact

Loss of all her 48 crew
