Digital Art - Mixed Media
The Rubis was a Saphir-class minelaying submarine which served in the French Navy and Free French Navy during the Second World War. She was awarded the Ordre de la Liberation for her services.
From 1946 to 1948, she was used as a school ship for rigging in Toulon.
Rubis was struck on 4 October 1949, and was sunk on 31 January 1958 to be used as a sonar target.
The wreck lies 41 metres underwater in an upright position on a sandy bottom between Cavalaire and Saint-Tropez, and has become a popular diving attraction.
