Raising SS Egypt

7th April 2021 (20:00 – 21:00 CET) on Zoom

SS Egypt

The P&O Liner SS Egypt sank off Brest in 1922. Amongst its cargo was £1million in gold. This talk will describe 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. His great-nephew, Neil Sandberg, will give a riveting account of the salvage.
