A group of divers swam down to depths of more than 100ft to explore an abandoned trove of British-made military trucks and equipment.<br />
<br />
The diving group decided to explore the wreckage - which includes Bedford trucks and Bren Carrier MK-1s, an armoured personnel carrier also called a Universal Carrier - after being told by their guide of a "little known wreck".<br />
<br />
It is believed the vehicles were either dumped into the sea by Arab troops during an assault of Sharm El-Sheikh, in Egypt, or by the Israeli military when they were leaving the city in 1957 after the Suez Crisis. <br />
<br />
The rusted vehicles lie haphazardly on the sea bed and are covered in coral. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS. <br />
