The boadicea, a British destroyer, was an unlucky victim of WW2. She was hit directly in the forward magazine by an aerial torpedo which completely blew the fore part of the ship away, sending her quickly to the bottom. What remains of the bow is scattered across the seabed but her amidships and stern make a superb dive with much to see, she even has depth charges still in the racks.
Max depth 53m.

Jack Joseph (from Mile end London) was one of the Stockers on the Boadicea

On 15th Aug 2016 we will put a memorial flag on the wreck in memory of Jack by his nephew Stephen Slotin.
