The wreck was dived again in 2009 and the following observations made.
The Low pressure turbine is not in an obvious position.The tiles were marked " Made in Belgium " and look to be c1940. Pottery is marked " Bristol Vitrite , Pountney and Co , England, Again c 1940. The stern gun has a bore of 3 to 3.5 inches. The intermediate pressure cylinder cover is missing on the engine which would make an exact cylinder bore measurement possible and thus confirm identity.
