Very interesting story.

That Metro article is in serious need of a new editor/fact checker though (or less autocorrect):

QuoteThe shattered vessel has been lying marooned in the depths since it was struck in 1917 by a German submarine missile – killing 66 of its 110-strong crew.

...

The 44 sailors who survived used onboard emergency rafts – with the strike so horrific the German U-boat commander who hit them took two maimed British sailboards onto his submarine and radioed the allies coordinates so the rest could be rescued.
