The wreck of the German Ironclad, Grosser Kurfurst, located in the English Channel 4 miles off the South Coast of Britain has just been awarded National Heritage status. Enhanced sonar pictures of the wreck show that she is inverted with the masts snapped off to starboard. The hull plating is complete from the mainmast aft but the hull has collapsed forward. An article in the Daily Mail gives more details.
