This German destroyer ran on two mines on January 24 1942 and sank. 93 of the 325 people on board were killed. The wreck lies on the starboard side on a hard sandy bottom therefore it’s hardly covered with sand. The Bruno Heinemann is still reasonably intact. Although where it got hit by the two mines it is considerably damaged. The bow is separated from hull and is located 80 meters from the wreck. The top of the bridge has completely collapsed. Noticeable are the guns, ammunition, depth charges, the gigantic rudder and propeller.
