Diving in Sudan

Szilvia Gogh and Hilaire Brosio dive The Red Sea courtesy of the Andromeda. Here they explore Jacques Cousteau’s underwater village Conshelf II, The Blue Bell and The Umbria. The Blue Bell sank in 1977 and was packed full with Toyotas bound for Sudan.

The Umbria was scuttled by it’s Italian Captain one hour before Italy entered into WWII. This kept the English from capturing its 6,000 bombs, 36,000 detonators, rifle ammo and 3 Fiat Lungas. Oh yeah, and several thousand bottles of wine.
