Cominoland

Malta,Mediterranean

HMS M 6 was laid down by Philips & Sons Company in Dartmouth, and was launched for Royal Navy in 1942. She was stricken from the Navy lists in the 1960's and was sold to the company Zammit & Sons in Malta in 1966. She did service both as a tourist boat and a local ferry under the names Minor IV and Minor Eagle. After decades of service she was condemned and deliberately scuttled outside the island of Gozo as an artificial reef and dive attraction in August 2006. The wreck rest today on a depth of 30 to 45 meter outside Xatt-I-Ahmar southeast of Gozo.
