"Salvage" of Propellors from HMS Prince of Wales

Are you aware that earlier this year the propellors were "Salvaged" from HMS Prince of Wales.

According to reports from the local diving fraternity, the "Salvors" used explosives to separate them from their shafts before lifting them to the surface using cranes.

It seems that these "Salvors" may not have broken any International Laws - but..........they were certainly taking them to sell as scrap for profit.

has any representation been made by Force Z Survivors or COFEPOW to UK Govenrment to see if anything can be done about this?

Does anyoine know WHo the "Salvors" were?
