    SS THISTLEGORM - the ultimate visual guide: iBook published

    For those not on Facebook:

    Well its taken a while, but we have just published an iBook about the SS Thistlegorm.

    Jointly authored by Jon Henderson, Alex Mustard and Mike Postons the iBook has 340 images, documents and detailed orthophotos showing where to find the cargo, images selected from the Imperial War Museum showing how the vehicles, motorbikes etc looked in the 1940s, contemporary images of present day preserved examples and around 120 of Alex Mustard's images of the ship today. Plus...9 interactive 3D models of the ship and cargo.

    Congratulations
    That should be a "must buy" for anyone planning to dive it
    Diving, and photography holidays in Gozo
    Private guiding, don't follow the crowd.

    Simon - we've dived the Thistlegorm many times - we shan't dive it again (in fact, we probably shan't dive again; full stop) but, for memories sake, we'll get this.

    Thanks for the post

    I thought may be over 16 yrs with deterioration from age and more divers and items being taken things could had changed.

    Unfortunately boats are still mooring onto it even using some of the more fragile sections. So over time more and more of the ship is being lost.
