Project Cardonnet ticked the "true spirit of adventurous diving" box to win the trophy. It was also “an example of a hugely successful project which challenged the team in terms of planning, logistics, international relations and a complex subject matter."

Project Cardonnet recorded several WW2 D-Day wrecks lost in the early hours of 6 June 1944 and was achieved with special permission of the French Cultural Ministry (DRASSM).  Find out more about Project Cardonnet on our Projects page.
