The gallery pic of a drowned tank reminded me of an almost identical job I was on to recover a chieftan up in Hohne/Soltau area. I was called out as part of the RE diving team to recover the tank, which had veered off into a big pond/small lake when the driver was blinded by some tw*t who put on a spotlight when he heard the chieffy approaching. When we got there some smartarrse with a CET had started digging a channel to a nearby slope, with the intention of draining the pond. We smirked and did the posing bit whilst we set up (a small crowd had gathered ) Fcuk me if the swine in the CET hadn't moved half the hillside during our posing (kitting up) time and drained the pond. The diver (not me thank god) still had to go in, fully kitted up with the water/mud just over the top of his knees, as the recovery lugs on the belly plate were a couple of inches under the water/mud. Divers log book entry....depth 6 inches Any other embarassing drowned/bogged in/recovery stories?
