Like the SS Vera off Cley Beach, the SS Rosalie which lies off Weybourne is a familiar, if less visible, wreck and a regular dive site.

It is well known that she was torpedoed and subsequently grounded in 1915 but what was her history and who was her Captain?

The only sign of the ship is a single iron upright which belies the extent of the large wreckage beneath the water. A similar analogy could be applied to the story of the Rosalie, for my research has revealed some surprising discoveries “under the surface”.
