A four-year project, 2014–2018, has been undertaken by the Maritime Archaeological Trust generously funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to research these wrecks, largely forgotten and deteriorating in the prevailing environment, so that they are not overlooked and before many of them disintegrate further.

The project, named Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War: Remembering and Commemorating through Archaeology, has involved not only the Trust’s staff but a great many volunteers, of whom Roger has been one for the final 18 months of the project.  

In Schola Clara's article about Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War (p16-17), there were a number of unfortunate oversights from the submitted article, and Roger Burns (Class of 1964) has agreed with the school's offer that the article should be republished.
