The French submarine chaser ‘CH6’ was under polish command when she was sunk by gunfire by German warships, thought to be E-boats. She was the same class as the ‘Carentan’, although was never given a name like its British counterparts.

The wreck lies off to port. The wheelhouse is badly broken and full of bullet holes. The engines are exposed. Miscellaneous ordinance lie scattered off the stern.
