Mariner - a very interesting discovery. 200 tons of pure silver !

The spokesman for the salvagers said - ' we honour their memory ' - what he means is thank goodness they got sunk.

The comments below this are very strange - seem to be some very 'liberal' antiBritish comments ?

However, I do agree that it is wrong that we let a foreign company reap the benefits. The silver belongs to Britain and we should have had a British Company salvage it and put it into the Bank of England - they could have been paid a fee.

If you think that's bad go look at this

It was in the Times today. Dutch scrap gypos are using craned claws to rip the ships apart to get to the metal. Almost 1500 lives were lost on these WW1 torpedoed ships and it seems the Dutch police are having trouble stopping them. Anyone gotta boat, I'll bloody stop em :angry:

It says that aircraft confirm the illegal activity. They should have dropped a few "eggs" on their decks and they could have JOINED the ships below! Although I realize it would be poetic justice if they were torpedoes.
