Just 90 minutes’ drive south of Olbia airport in Sardinia’s Golfo di Orosei lies the wreck of the KT-12. This ship was carrying lorries and other goods for the Afrika Korps, when she was torpedoed in 1943 by HMS Safari – one of Britain’s most successful submarines of the Second World War. It now makes an interesting diversion for wreck divers in search of military history covered with marine life. Cheap flights to Olbia with easyjet are available from the UK, so the wreck is well within reach for a long weekend of wreck diving.
