War Fundy

Sweden,Baltic Sea

War Fundy was built in St. Johns in Canada by Grant & Home, and was launched in 1918 for The Shipping Controller in London. The First World War however, ended in November the same year, and in 1919 she was sold to Societe des cargos Francais. Under a voyage from Blyth to Gävle loaded with coal, she hit ground under heavy fog outside Grundkallen lighthouse. Her crew was rescued by another ship that came to assists, and three days later she disappeared in the deep. The wreck was found by divers in the 1980s. Her hull, which was built in mahogany is still largely intact. The wreck rest today on her keel like a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 15 to 30 meter, south of Grundkallen lighthouse.
