The Barletta wreck previously reported to have been HMS Regent has been examined by Italian divers led by Fabio Bisciotti on Sunday 28th June. It has now been identified as the Italian submarine Giovanni Bausan which was converted as the oil depot G.R.S.251 and used as a target by the Allied Air Forces  in June 1944.

The divers were:

Fabio Bisciotti
Alessandro Aulicino
Michele Favaron
Stefania Bellesso
Ruggero Nanula
Pasquale Bailon
Pietro Amoruso

I expect they will soon publish some photos but the wreck is in a very poor shape.

The wreck of HMS Regent is still to be found but the team is determined to look for it and hopefully they will succeed.

Platon,

very interesting news. Anyway the ex BAUSAN became the pontoon GR 251. The "S" in the end was meaning that the pontoon was self-propulsed, but as you also stated, the ex BAUSAN was employed simply as oil depot.
