In turn, this one gives the impression of being extremely rich, as every now and then we receive information about further very interesting findings. This time, the most valuable loot seems to be a cylinder from the German company Draeger, or Dräger. Such tanks were used during the Second World War in rescue apparatuses, the so-called Draeger lungs. They were used on all sorts of vessels, including submarines and aircrafts.

This weekend’s weather (one degree short of “forty”) only allowed for exploration around the plate…

In addition to a cylinder that was part of the Draeger lung set, divers searching Lake Miedwie found and excavated, among other things torpedo positioning bed or a sizeable piston. As divers participating in the Miedwie Zone project suppose, it may come from the engine of the cutter, which was used to catch the tested torpedoes.

In accordance with the regulations in force, all found objects will be handed over to the Starost of Stargard.

Heartfelt thanks – once again – are due to the 102nd Security Battalion in Bielkowo, which provided us with access to the torpedo plate from the unit’s side. We bow to Lt. Col. Rafał Jędro and all the soldiers of the unit for their trust and time. We hope that soon we will have the opportunity to repay you in a worthy manner – we read on the official profile of the Miedwie Zone

Project Zone Miedwie

Strefa Miedwie is a search project that covers Lake Miedwie and certain areas in the municipality of Kobylanka. People involved in this initiative are looking for traces of the region’s wartime past. Above all, a German POW camp for Soviet soldiers and prisoners of war from the Warsaw Uprising. However, their goal is also artefacts of military technologywhich the waters of Miedwie Lake hide. The project is carried out by the Szczecin Underwater Exploration Group “Gryf”, the Association of the Fortress Group “Bastion” and the municipality of Kobylanka.
