    DescriptionThe ship - which was sunk by a U-boat in Scapa Flow in October 1939 with the loss of more than 830 men and boys - is protected as a war grave.

    But the divers have been allowed to gather images and information for use in 80th anniversary commemorations.

    It follows similar projects by the same group on the wrecks of the Royal Navy ships HMS Hampshire and HMS Vanguard.
