‘It has taken a lot of punishment’
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.
