    French training battleship is wrecked on the rocks, Oran, Algeria.

  • Description

    Oran, Algeria.

    Full titles read: "FRENCH BATTLESHIP LOST - Salvage efforts abandoned on great 14,000-ton training cruiser "Edgar Quintet", wrecked on uncharted rock off Algerian Coast."

    L/S of the wrecked ship being thrown about in the rough sea, the warship appears to be breaking in half. L/S of huge crack and gaping hole in the hull of the vessel.
