The steamer ELBING IX sank in the First World War in 1913. It ran into a mine near Klaipeda (formerly Memel) when it was on its way to rescue the castaways of the warship FRIEDRICH CARL.
The bell was found by the BSHRP in 2018. It’s on the wooden deck.
In 2019 I was able to take pictures of the bell, which I was able to convert into a 3D model with the help of Robert Szymaniuk.
Fair BOOT 2020
At BOOT 2020 we presented the model of the bell at the booth of the Baltic Sea Heritage Rescue Project and every day we printed a bell.
