The courage of these divers to enter a 1/2 sunken ship is amazing. Grateful for the folks who shared this on YouTube. Pass this kind of video around so they never are lost.

Thanks for posting! :Smile_honoring:

 

My pleasure! One thing I'm appreciating about WoWS is that it evokes the desire to learn more about the history of ships I play, and play against. 
It's amazing how much video is out there.

Nice find, I imagine those old dive suits were exhausting to use and it looked like they barely fit through the doorways.

I'm about half way through that now. Chilling and thought provoking.
When they center in on the Imperial Seal on the bow, you just have to pause, and reflect.
My pleasure \o

Awesome book, "Descent into Darkness" buy it.  Written by a US diver salvaging the BB's at Pearl Harbor. will scare the crap out of you on several pages.

???? , The Imperial seal was gone, and I have my suspicions it is sitting in some vault in one of  Paul Allen's mansions. LOL

A great book on salvage is Under the Red Sea Sun Capt. Edward Ellsburg, USN (ret.)  It's a making chicken soup out of chicken [edited] story...

It was made out of wood, you can see its remains on it's mount on the bow (starting around 12:15 on the video).

I know , I have seen the video before and looked at again from your note. It is just a couple of the areas look "fresher" than the others.  Possible, but unlikely, I know. 

 

I have been pushing for raising the USS Tecumseh, and it is frustrating to see these billionaires, diving the Musashi , Bismark, Princeton, et al and not focusing more  on a possible recovery of a US ship in extremly shallow water (20-30 feet).  With the money, clout and influence that people like Allen, Cameron, Cussler have , it could happen. I have bene "trying" over the years, but i need to be more systematic, need some help and $$$  to do so. And I really plan to get serious abouti it. need some family to  keel over , and/or a settlement to come through. I want to see it through before I die myself. Personally  i think some of the dodging is that it a Civil War ship , so there are PC issues, plus seems these guys aint "historians" as much just seeking publicity outside of a "hobby" not something serious or seeing a permanent memorial/monument/museum of naval warfare/American history .  Must be nice, but i am looking at a deeper level than that, so to speak. a dentist form Vickburg , saw the USS Cairo raised , and it is something to see, he died raising the Cairo, but the ship in Vicksburg for all to see.

as long as we are talking books on US Navy salvage, try this:

https://www.amazon.com/Bottom-Raising-U-S-Navy-Submarine/dp/0451211510

'On the Bottom'  also by Cpt Edward Ellsburg originally published in 1929, and talks about the raising of the sunken submarine S-51
