 Información adicional

English (Traducir este texto en Español): The USAT Liberty is one of Bali's most famous dive site.

USAT Liberty Glo, a United States Army Transport, was built at the Hog Island emergency shipyard in Philadelphia during World War I, but was completed after the November 1918 armistice. Shortly after the U.S. entry into World War II, Liberty Glo was torpedoed and beached on the island of Bali and is now a popular dive site.

Hog Island Hull No. 517 was laid down as SS Scooba on June 12, 1918 but by the time it was launched on June 14, 1919 it had been renamed SS Liberty Glo. Delivered to the U.S. Shipping Board on August 2, 1919, she was a cargo ship of 5,000 gross tons and 7,825 deadweight tons, 394 feet (120 m) long and 54 feet (16 m) beam. Liberty Glo was the 36th Hog Islander built and one of twelve built as "Type B" troop carriers. (Liberty Glo was not a Liberty Ship, which were a similar concept of vessel built during World War II.)

The redesignated USAT Liberty Glo, remeasured at 6,211 tons, was bound from Australia to the Philippines on January 11, 1942 with a cargo of railway parts and rubber for the war effort when she was torpedoed by Japanese submarine I-166 about 10 mi (19 km) southwest of Lombok Strait. U.S. destroyer USS Paul Jones (DD-230) and Dutch destroyer HNLMS Van Ghent took the damaged ship in tow attempting to reach Singaraja, the Dutch port and administrative centre for the Lesser Sunda Islands, on the north coast of Bali. However she was taking too much water and so was beached on the eastern shore of Bali at Tulamben so that the cargo and fittings could be salvaged.

Liberty Glo was one of 58 Hog Islanders that were casualties in World War II.

In 1963 the tremors associated with the eruption of Mount Agung caused the vessel to slip off the beach, and she now lies on a sand slope in 30 to 100 feet (9 to 30 m) of water, providing one of the most popular dives off Bali.

Dive operators commonly misname the wreck “USS Liberty”, and it has also been incorrectly referred to as a Liberty Ship, which were a similar concept of vessel built during the Second World War.

Between 10:00 to 14:00 o`clock it`s very crowded there. Groups of japanese divers arrive at this time with busses. The dive-experience of these divers are very low or less. Early morning and late afternoon dives are very quiet, if you stay in Tulamben.

L’USAT Liberty Glo

Le Liberty a été lance le 19 juin 1918 par Federal Shipbuilding Company de Kearny, New Jersey, et a été acquis par la marine Américaine le 7 octobre 1918. Son premier commandant fut le Lieutenant comandant Charles Longbottom. Assignée au service de transport «Outre mer», le Liberty a quitté New York le 24 octobre 1918 pour atterrir à Brest, en France avec sa cargaison de chevaux, le 8 novembre. Puis, le navire, apres deux autres transport, fut retiré du service actif le 7 mai 1919. Dès le début de la seconde guerre mondiale, il a été torpillé près de l’ile de Bali, et dorénavant, c’est un site de plongée populaire.

Avec le début de la 2e guerre mondiale, le navire a repris du service actif en novembre 1940. Quand les États-Unis d’Amérique sont entrés dans la seconde guerre mondiale, il était dans le Pacifique. Le navire, désigné comme étant le USAT Liberty Glo, a quitté l’Australie, le 11 janvier 1942, chargé de rail de chemin de fer, et de caoutchouc, afin de soutenir l’effort de guerre. Il a été torpillé par le sous-marin japonais I-166, à 10 miles (19 km) de Lombok Strait. Le destroyer USS Paul Jones (DD-230) et le destroyer Hollandais HNLMS Van Ghent l’ont pris en remorque afin d’atteindre Singaraja, un port sous contrôle Hollandais, et centre administratif des iles Lesser Sunda, sur la cote nord de Bali. Mais le navire prenait trop d’eau et il a été échoué sur la cote est de Bali afin de sauver la cargaison, et ultimement, le navire.

L’USS Liberty Glo a été l’un des 58 navires des iles Hog qui ont fait partie des navires perdus lors de second conflit mondial.

En 1963, l’éruption du Mont Agung a provoqué le glissement du navire sur une pente de sable, ou il repose maintenant sous 30 à 100 pieds (9 to 30 m) d’eau, mais ce faisant, proposant l’un des sites de plongée les plus populaire de Bali.

Les centres de plongée le désignent faussement comme étant l’épave du “USS Liberty”, et il est aussi fâcheusement comme étant l’un des «Liberty Ship», navires construit par un programme semblable, lors du second conflit mondial.
