Neat.

Are there going to be preservation / recovery efforts?

@Lert it appears to be less than 1/2 of the boat in pieces severely rusted and would likely crumble when touched.

I am surprised it wasn't salvaged for scrap soon after the war's end.

No. 

It isn't a new discovery, just a case of low tide revealing a known wreck. This particular one is not a war grave, (all crew evacuated when it grounded), so can be visited (if you understand tides, and have a tidal timetable; if not, probably a bad idea to try)/

If half the wreck is so badly rusted that it crumbles when touched, I would advise against climbing on it, let alone going in it. Since all it takes is the right seams to be corroded and you could get trapped in or under some still quite strong pieces of wreckage. And then when the tide comes in things could become tragic.

It looks too far gone to preserve.
