Hi, I'm Heleen, and I live very near to the place the Valentine was sunk. I learned the ship was left where it is because of the ammunition still on board. It is situated close to a large chemical plant. Nowadays there is almost nothing left to see, but until a few years ago it was clearly visible from the dyke. I think I don't speak only for myself when I say that every time I pass the resting place of the ship, I think of the brave men aboard, and thank them in my thoughts.
