Raising SS Egypt

Featured Image

The P&O Liner SS Egypt sank off Brest in 1922. Amongst its cargo was £1million in gold. Neil Sandberg described the salvage of the cargo, which was at a depth of 65 fathoms (400ft). The deepest known salvage until then was at 25 fathoms (150ft), so very few believed that recovery was possible ... apart from a Swedish engineer called Peter Sandberg, Neil's Great Uncle.
