History
        
Built 1929 in Sweden by Helsingborgs Varf and owned by B Inglesson.  The steamer was carrying a cargo of Welsh coal from Swansea to Sundsvall, Sweden on May 31st 1930 when she collided with the Italian steamer Literno six miles south west of Beachy Head.  The Literno hit the Inger on the starboard bow.  .
Present state
            The starboard bow damage can be clearly seen on this wreck that sits on the sea bed at 35m, from which she stands some 12m proud.  Her bridge is amidships and there are two holds on either side of it containing the coal.  She has an iron four bladed propeller with a spare one stowed in the aft hold.  The highest points are the winches on the bow which points to the east.
