Shipwreck Blog: Drowned Battle Tanks

WWII-era British Centaur tanks and Caterpillar bulldozers, eight miles off the Sussex coast.

They were destined for the D-Day invasion but never made it. How did they end up at the bottom of the sea? Records aren't clear. I'd speculate that they came loose from their fastenings on the deck of a ship during a storm and went overboard, or were jettisoned from a ship in distress.
