The bay of Hyères

The bay of Hyères

The bay of Hyères is a vast expanse of water dedicated to the craft. Yet a few years ago this area was used as range shooting and storing explosive devices. And ammunition (bullets, shells, bombs, torpedoes and gas) still living at the bottom. During underwater surveys of our campaigns, we point out systematically at the end of each campaign the exact positions of vehicles encountered on the merits, of course, being careful not to touch it. The service clearance treats them progressively in order of priority and dangerousness. The bay has also been the scene of many shipwrecks, including the infamous, the Arrogant. .

Artificial island for launching torpedoes (DR)

Today this island is virtually destroyed, and is on the town of La Londe. It has its counterpart in Toulon.
