Down under and backwards in time. The HMAS Sydney and the Nazi Vessel Kormoran. World War II combatants, now remnants of military and human history.
Enemy cruisers engaged in battle with one another both destroyed and sunk off Western Australia in November of 1941. Hundreds died.
The German ship's hull ripped open by battle now covered in plant life and sediment. Sydney's gun turrets still largely intact and visible through sea growth.
The wrecks lie a mile and a half down on the floor of the Indian Ocean. Resting roughly 12 miles apart.
Despite initial searches and exploration over the years. The ships were not discovered until 2008. This most recent survey capturing 75 years of stillness as the metal structures sit in the 70 degree waters.
