Fantastic piece, nicely done, Sir. I tried to get a history of the ship and the accident, your picture seems to show the vessel raised afterwards. No luck on the history front, is there anything you can tell us about the ship?

Thank you Mike.
ORP "Kaszub" - torpedo boat (former V-108 of Kaiserliche Marine), one of the first ships of the Polish Navy recreated after Poland regained its independence in 1918. In service from 1921 to 1925.
History
She was built in 1914 by Stettiner Maschinenbau A.G. Vulcan in Stettin, Germany (now in Poland). She was begun for a Dutch Navy order as Z-4 (along with three sister ships Z-1,Z-2,Z-3), but after the outbreak of World War I she was confiscated by Germany and commissioned as torpedo boat V-108, taking an active part in World War I, fighting in the Baltic Sea against the Imperial Russian Navy.
Polish service
When the German Imperial Navy was divided among victorious powers in 1919 after World War I, Poland was granted six torpedo boats, among them V-108. The ship, then located in Britain, was overhauled there and arrived in Poland in October, 1921, officially entering into service. Poland also received her sister ship, V-105 as well (later the Polish ORP Mazur), and four smaller torpedo boats.
Demise
THE SHIP WAS SUNK BY A BOILER EXPLOSION ON JULY 20, 1925. THE CAUSES ARE UNKNOWN TO THIS DAY. THREE CREWMEN DIED.
Specifications
  • Displacement: 340 tons, 421 tons full load
  • Maximum speed: 28 knots
  • Armament:
    • German service: 2 × 88 mm guns, 2 × 450 mm torpedo tubes
    • Polish service: 2 × 47 mm guns (changed in 1924 to 2 × 75 mm guns), 2 × 450 mm torpedo tubes
