‘It has taken a lot of pun­ish­ment’

The Daily Telegraph - Your Money - - FRONT PAGE -

Time and tim­ing is ev­ery­thing to Dr Timmy Gam­bin when he’s un­der­wa­ter. The ex­plorer and se­nior lec­turer in mar­itime ar­chae­ol­ogy at Univer­sity of Malta wears the re­doubtable Bre­mont Su­per­ma­rine S2000. “It is ex­tremely tough and durable and has taken a lot of pun­ish­ment,” he notes. “It’s also quite a looker.”

The wa­ters sur­round­ing Malta pro­vide a wealth of ship­wrecks ks for Gam­bin to lo­cate and re­search, h, in­clud­ing those sunk dur­ing the he Sec­ond World War.

Last year, he took part in what hat he de­scribes as his most mem­o­rable ble dive to date – lead­ing an in­ter­na­tional nal team to place a me­mo­rial plaque ue and un­furl the white en­sign on n the wreck of the Bri­tish sub­ma­rine e HMS Olym­pus. This marked the 75th an­niver­sary of its

mil­i­tary deep-wa­ter divers.
