Beirut, 20 December, 2006
The National Institute for Scuba Diving in Lebanon has been
regularly conducting spectacular technical dives in Tripoli, North Lebanon on
the HMS Victoria and the Submarine Torpedo carrier.
The HMS Victoria sank in 1893 after collision with its
sister Ship the HMS Camperdown.

H.M.S Victoria and Submarine Torpedo carrier.
The Torpedo Boat whose name remains a mystery is a ship
that was used as a Torpedo Carrier supplying the Vichy submarines with torpedoes
in the open sea. The ship was sunk after receiving a direct hit either from an
allied ship canon or bombed from an airplane.
