HMS Prince Philippe

Hi, I am researching Belgian Ferries in WW2 and I need an idea of where to try next.

HMS Prince Philippe was involved in a collision with another
55 5' N., 5 24' W. july 15th 1941 en route from Liverpool
to Inveraray was in a collision in thick fog with HMS "Empire Wave" in the North Channel.

According to the Royal Navy and Irish Navy the wreck lies outside British territorial Waters and they cannot help.

The Philippe was a Commissioned Ship, crewed by Royal Navy Personnel and there were fatalities during the sinking.
