Peter Routledge will be talking about developments in deep diving for the amateur. What is Technical diving and is it for me? Technical diving can conjure up a stereotypical image of overly complicated and difficult diving for danger addicts. Well, times are a changing.

HMS Royal Oak was one of five Revenge-class battleships built for the Royal Navy during the First World War. Launched in 1914 and completed in 1916, Royal Oak first saw combat at the Battle of Jutland as part of the Grand Fleet. Watch Peter Rowlands moving film telling, in detail, the story of HMS Royal Oak, the events that led up to the sinking, eyewitness accounts of the young sailors aboard and what she looks like now, including the moving ceremony of unfurling the White Ensign.
