The story is about a young couple on holiday in a small town called Larggs on the west coast of Scotland.
One morning the couple had driven up the coast looking for somewhere to dive, and when they did dive the stumbled upon a world war two German submarines.but they had no idea what danger they had taken themselves into. A group of Germans had been looking for the submarine for many years. More
‘I will bet you fifty quid it’s a German up there.’
‘Well said John lets go find out what he wants, and there’s the little matter of Lisa to settle yet don’t forget.’ When they got to the top of the cliff. Alan went to the car carrying two air bottles. He could see that the car looked different in some way. Then he shouted. ‘Oh no look what the bastard has done.’ He was pointing to the two front wheels. The German had let down the two front tyres. ‘That’s great now one of us will have to walk all the way back to Larggs to get one of the tyres filled. ‘I will go said Alan.’ Then Debbie spoke up. ‘Now you might not have to go.’
‘What do you mean.’
‘ If we have any air left in the bottles, and if we take off the mouthpiece we should be able to fill the tyre it may work.’ John spoke next. ‘You don’t say very much Debbie but when you do it’s worth listening to that’s brilliant.
When he got back to the Hotel John said I think we should give diving a rest for today. I don’t know if you know Alan but you can dive too much.
‘Yes said Alan, we should stop for one day and it will give us a chance to look Larggs over, all we have seen is the front of the Hotel and the inside of the coffee shop.’
They had a look along the sea front the girls looking at the shops John and Alan just talking. When they came to the end of the shops and also the end of the sea front. John said. ‘Let’s take a walk along the beach we might find something there.’
About half way along they saw an old timer sitting besides an upturned boat. They saw at a glance that he was very old. When they asked him if he knew anything about Vikingar. He smiled and said. ‘Well yes I do laddy I have lived in Larggs man and boy for eighty seven years and there’s knout I don’t know about the coastline along here. John said. ‘During the Second World War it was reported that a German submarine had sunk off Larggs, do you know anything about it Sir.’
‘Oh I remember it well, but that’s a funny thing you’re the second one this week to ask that.’ The old man looked them over and said. ‘I will you lot because your British and not German, I think the submarine is still there somewhere waiting to be found, it was after the storm that week that I found the sailor’s cap, and on it was a number.’
‘Do you recall what the number was Sir.’
‘I can do better than that I still have the cap, so you see I think the submarine is still someplace, would you like to see the cap.’
‘That would be great Sir said Alan.’
‘Oh don’t be calling me Sir my name is Robert Bob to you.’ He laughed out loud then said. If you would like to see the cap I have it up at my house, mind you it’s a bit grubby now but it’s there if you want to see it, have you got a sheet of paper and a pen or pencil, then I can give you my address and you can call on me anytime after 4 o-clock because I won’t go home until four or so it’s up to you its there if you want to see it, by the way a friend of mine found another cap at the same time I did, but he died three years ago.’
‘Did you tell the Germans anything about your cap.’
