World War I 1917 warship wreck found

The GPR has a photo of the only body recovered from the loss of the destroyer HMS Pheasant on 1st March 1917.

Midshipman Reginald Alexander Cotter drowned when the destroyer was thought to have struck a mine off Rora Head close to the Old Man of Hoy, Orkney. The German submarine U80 had laid mines in the area on 21st January 1917. All of HMS Pheasant's crew of eighty nine died and only Reginald Cotter's body was recovered. He was twenty years old.

The wreck has been located during an archaeological maritime survey in August 2017 using multi-beam sonar. The wreck is protected as a designated vessel under the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986.

You can see details of his grave monument which is in the Lynes Naval Military Cemetery.
