    and "may".

    9,500 sailors! Wow a big cruise liner indeed.
    Some say the cup is half empty, while others say it is half full. However, in my opinion both are wrong. The real problem is the cup is too big.

    Another load of DM garbage, if there ever was anything there the Russians would have recovered it years ago.

    It was mainly women and children .. the **** sheet couldn't even do basic research.

    Also the Russians did dive it and blew up the mid section.

    Unlike the Titanic, it did not take years to establish where the wreck of the Gustloff lay. An accurate position recorded during the sinking (55.07N, 17.41E) and relatively shallow waters (45m/150ft) near the Stolpe Bank make it easy to locate. Sometime after the war has ended, it is alleged that the Soviets visit the wreck and scour for objects of interest. Rumours of a cherished Soviet treasure - the Amber Room - in the cargo hold may have provoked a visit. They blow up the mid-ship section to cover their tracks – leaving only the bow and stern reasonably recognizable. Other items have been pilfered from the wreck including the anchors and props. Today, the wreck is officially designated as a grave site and is off limits to divers by order of Polish authorities. However, some dives have been made recently, particularly by Mike Boring and his team in May 2003.

    The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

    How many other vessels had wooden boxes put on board at the end of the war all having "Treasure" on board. If true all the best

    A sad enough story without Muppets getting Gold Fever over it. How many people have heard of the Gustollf? Makes the Titanic look like a boating pond accident.

    100% agree , what with complete sunken WW2 warships recently (2 weeks ago) reported as missing (it seems taken for scrap steel) .

    The missing ships in SE Asia was very well known as was on the historical groups whilst I was there and nothing was done to stop it. Just about every ship of note sunk an the onset of the Japanese attack no longer exist, although designated war graves.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Prince_of_Wales_(53) In October 2014, the Daily Telegraph reported that both Prince of Wales and Repulse were being "extensively damaged" with explosives by scrap metal dealers.[41]

    Waters off Iceland seem more of a certainty - but not without problems (probably beneficial ownership of this gold will be a bit of a problem , also too many after a cut) ,,
