An unusual site when you open the curtains first thing in the morning. U534 was on the same dock where I was dismantling Seacombe ferry landing stage. The stern tube on the starboard side was open to the sea when she was lifted from the sea bed which led to speculation she had been carrying Nazi loot when she was sunk. I looked around her several times but never found anything. My camp is set up to the left.
