Hi Emmanuel. Sorry for the late answer. Im out of my home port...Agree with you about the mine but anyway looks great just in front of the subs bow...jejeje. Interesting visit to the inside, very well mantained and friendly ex crew mwmbers explaining everything. A must for submarine lovers... Thanks for your kind comments my friend and thinking about a short trip to Malta in late Nov.

I hope she never got that close to that mine beneath her bow when in service.
