From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

HMS L24 was a British L class submarine built by Vickers, Barrow-in-Furness. She was laid down on 13 February 1919 and was commissioned on an unknown date.

L24 was sunk in a collision with the battleship HMS Resolution during an exercise off Portland Bill in the English Channel on 10 January 1924. The crew were lost. A memorial is located in St Ann's Church in HMNB Portsmouth.[1].

The wreck is located at 50°22.50′N 02°37.79′W / 50.375°N 2.62983°W / 50.375; -2.62983 at a depth of 52 metres. Her hydroplanes remain set to hard dive indicating that she was trying to take evasive action. A hatch is open and there is obvious damage where Resolution sliced into her hull. The wreck is designated as a protected place under the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986.
