I would like to introduce the L72 ORP Kujawiak/ HMS Oakley Rebreatherpro-Training

I would like to introduce the L72 ORP Kujawiak/ HMS Oakley, one of the new wrecks opening up in Malta which lies in 100m of water.

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 ????

This will be the last post for a while as I will not be able to make further posts for a couple of weeks.

ORP Kujawiak was a British Type II Hunt-class destroyer escort, formerly named HMS Oakley.

Kujawiak was built by Vickers-Armstrongs at the company's High Walker yard on the River Tyne. Her keel was laid down on 22 November 1939 and she was launched on 30 October 1940. Originally commissioned into the Royal Navy, she was renamed and commissioned into the Polish Navy in June 1941.

Kujawiak was sunk on 16 June 1942 after running into a mine near Malta while participating in Operation Harpoon. 13 Polish sailors died and 20 were wounded. She now lies in 101m of water.

During the project, the bell was removed at the request of the government and will be displayed in both the Maltese and Polish museums.
