English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): British Royal Navy minesweeper, class &amp;quot;Shakespeare&amp;quot;. Launched September 2nd 1940. and sunk by the sea mine on may 5th 1945. (official data from Imperial war museum in London).
As well as other ships in her class, she was named after a W. Shakespeare piece. The leading character in the tragedy &amp;quot;Coriolanus&amp;quot; was the legendary Roman hero, Gnaeus Marcius Coriolanus who earned his nickname during the siege of the town Corioli in the year 493 BC.
Some sources say that HMS Coriolanus was also a spy ship. That was her purpose in two of the allied naval operations during the WW2: TORCH, during the invasion in northern Africa 1942. and HUSKY, during the landing on Sicily in 1943. Allegedly, her presence in the northern Adriatic in 1945. was in order to spy on radio communication of new Yugoslav government.
DENIAL: Eric J. Secker (esecker at microd dot com) was a signalman &amp;amp; m&amp;#47;g from 1940 to 1944; he was onboard during the invasion in northern Africa 1942. and HUSKY, during the landing on Sicily in 1943: &amp;quot;To say that due was a spy ship in Op. Totch is completely incorrect. Some minesweeping and always antisub with Asdic were her duties.&amp;quot;
Commander was lieutenant N. Hunt. 14:10 is mentioned like the time of mine impact, and also that ship has sunk in a very short time.
The exact location of the wreck is 45d 19m 9s N, 13d 25m 25s E (about 6 Nm from the coast of Istria)
The wreck is partially covered with fishing nets. 3 Machine Boardcanons still well preserved.
Depth: 17-30 m
