The French submarine chaser CH6 was under polish command when she was sunk by gunfire by German warships, thought to be E-boats. She was the same class as the Carentan, although was never given a name like its British counterparts because she sank before she could be named.

The wreck lies off to port. The wheelhouse is badly broken and full of bullet holes. The engines are exposed. Miscellaneous ordinance lie scattered off the stern.
