A little bit of history about the Liberty wreck :
The Liberty wreck was built around 1919. It is a cargo ship that was mass produced between 1915 and 1919. It is 134 meters long and 39 meters wide.
During world war II, the ship was used to transport material and was on its way to the Philippines, cruising around Lombok when it was hit by a Japanese torpedo on January 11th 1942.
The ship didn't sink and was pulled by the American destroyer Paul Jones. The goal was to take the ship back to Singaraja in order to salvage the cargo.
unfortunately the damages were to big and the conditions at sea didn't permit to reach Singaraja. The ship was then beached in Tulamben where the cargo was saved. the ship was then abandoned on the beach and laid there until 1963.
In May 1963, the massive eruption of the Agung volcano provoked a flood of mud and ashes, pushing the wreck into the ocean where it lying since then.
