France - Underwater Explorations Museum

The Museum of Underwater Explorations displays Allied equipment, which has been found in the waters outside the D-day beaches. This can be all from helmets, over tanks to guns from some of the ships that were sunk during the D-day landing.

The DD tank should be able to sail on its own, but rough seas made it impossible, so many of these tanks were lost outside the beaches.
