Seems to be the flavour of the month.

I would have thought it a war grave even though she was scuttled and the dead from the "River Plate" battle buried ashore.

Interesting story, did not know it was scuttled. A museum yes, a private collector, no.

Here is a Movietone news clip of the event

And the old boys reckon the music of today is bad

There are a lot more detailed clips of Graf Spee on You Tube

It´s a grave. Have some decency eventhough they are big bad nazis.

Maybe it should be presented to Sir Henry Harwoods family, seeing as it was his cruiser sqn. that brought about the end of the Graf Spee.

As far as i know, the Graf Spee is not a grave. The 36 dead from the previous battle had been buried on the 15th December on the German cemetery in Montevideo. Two days later the ship was scuttled by its crew, and I'm pretty sure everyone got away from that...  :roll:

I'm no expert on maritime laws, but all wrecks are not graves, mustn't they be declared tombs before they are considered graves? Otherwise there is a rather big bunch of wrecks that should be left alone out of decency.
