    A short video about the life and loss of the RMS LUSITANIA. Diving this wreck was an incredible and moving experience. The dives were cold, not only literally, but moreover, figuratively, due to the knowledge that almost 1,200 lives were snuffed out so quickly due to the sinking. And then the dive team stumbled upon a docking telegraph thought lost during an earlier salvage attempt by the wreck owner's agents, we were tasked with recovering this remarkable artifact. Great memories!

    This is a fantastic video Michael, thanks for sharing. I wrote about the Lusitania in my book Shipwrecks of the Cunard Line. Always nice to see new footage of the wreck.

    Thank you for sharing the video. May we have an idea of the dive(s) profile ?
