Wreck of 1940 Royal Navy destroyer found in a Norwegian fjord

March 06, 2008

The wreck of a Royal Navy destroyer sunk by the German navy in 1940 with the loss of 110 lives has been found in a Norwegian fjord.

The location of HMS Hunter was a mystery until Norwegian minehunter Hnoms Tyr found her earlier this week during an exercise.

Its echo system revealed the vessel 305metres underwater, the Ministry of Defence said yesterday.

A wreath-laying ceremony will be held on Saturday involving the Royal Navy, the Netherlands Maritime Force and the Norwegian Navy.
