Last Friday we posted about the USS Arthur W Radford as an artificial reef. Thanks to Alaric Bond for passing on this video of the wreck of HMS Hermes, which is a popular dive site off near Batticaloa, Sri Lanka. HMS Hermes, commissioned in 1924, was the first ship designed and built as an aircraft carrier. Previous aircraft carriers had been conversions of other ships. She was sunk in 1942 by Japanese aircraft during World War II with a loss of over 300 men.
