If you get a look at the fantail check to see if there's a metal box that looks out of place welded to the deck. This is where they carried the core for one of the atomic bombs. The latest movie get this wrong.

In the picture that was shown on TV the ships bell was clearly visible, I wonder if they will salvage it like they did with the one from Hood?

I hope that this wreck will be fully respected.
