Target Practice in the Bay
The Aberlady submarines are a unique pair of wrecks on the East Lothian coastline. Most wrecked submarines lie at the bottom of the sea, having been sunk in action or lost by accident. However, these former training vessels were deliberately abandoned and used as target practice by the RAF after the war. They have since become a magnet for photographers keen to exploit the wrecks’ remote location.
