“Is there a safe way to explore or recover the SS Richard Montgomery wrecked in the Thames estuary where 1400 tonnes of explosives on board? What do you about that situation?”
We posed this question to Dave Parham at the University of Bornemouth...
Dave - Again, the coast of the UK are all covered in lots of unexploded ornaments from both world wars and my personal is to avoid it. We’re doing encounter it occasionally and then report it to the relevant authorities, but that's all that we can do with it.
Dave Parham’s reply to the SS Richard Montgomery wreck problem reminds me of the TV sketch where an interviewer asks an expert a long question about something and if he agrees, then the interviewed person says “ yes” and the lights fade out.
Guadalcanal is supposed to be a diver's paradise, and full of armaments in various states of decay.
Have a look at my website and things like "Bari" the wrecks exact location in regards to gas refinery power station and two holiday resorts. Also Sundaytimes article then come back and suggest blowing it up.
I found it on Google Maps, more or less.
