I would like to introduce HMD Trusty Star, one of the new wrecks opening up in Malta !!
I have been privileged to work with the University of Malta over the last years !! They have been working hard to prepare the wrecks to be opened to the public ????
HMD Trusty Star was a naval drifter built in 1919 by Ouse Shipbuilding for British Royal Navy. The steel vessel was about 26m in length with a beam of 5.5 m and had a triple expansion steam engine. Her original name was HMT Groundswell; she was later renamed FV Elie Ness when used in fishing industry in Scotland. Requisitioned by Admiralty in 1939, she was renamed HMD Trusty Star and converted to a minesweeper.
Trusty Star was clearing mines laid by German S-boats outside Grand Harbour on 10th June 1942, when she hit a mine herself and sank about 3 km off Fort St. Elmo in Valletta. Only one Maltese seaman was injured, and the rest of the crew were rescued unhurt.
