Damn! Why are we so deep? We can’t stop long enough to really explore this mechanical detritus from the Second World War but as we travel back up to a reasonable level, we see more and more military items: bullets, old shells, even a jeep’s steering wheel embedded in the reef. It is so encrusted in coral we almost swim past before recognizing the shape. We are bowled over – this is definitely not what we expected of the Solomons.
