Default HMS Poseidon by Ivan Berryman


HMS Poseidon by Ivan Berryman
Released October 2012

Launched in Barrow in Furness on 22nd August 1929, the Parthian Class submarine HMS Poseidon (P99) was destined to meet a tragic fate on 9th June 1931 when she was inexplicably involved in a collision with a Chinese freighter in the Bohai Sea during exercises in clear visibility. 31 of her crew managed to get into the water before the submarine sank, whilst a further eight escaped from the submerged vessel. Two of these didn't make it to the surface and one died later in hospital, making a tragic total of 21 deaths in this extraordinary tragedy. HMS Poseidon is depicted here in happier times, moving off from her depot ship as the night sky closes in.
