    Well, if you don't want to believe it, then fine, but it's actually the truth, I'll try to get a few pictures up tomorrow of a KM sailor tie that was recovered from the Tirpitz

    It just cant be, cloth in sea water. It would destroy the fabric and remove the golden colours of the insignia. It is impossible that it could have been in the water for 70 yes and look like it was made yesterday. If all the metal insignia is not original wouldn't this just make it another plain navy cap. I would like to believe it survived the tirpitz but in this condition i think not.

    I saw footage of a German wreck in the baring sea, I think it was there, somewhere cold anyway! But there were still uniforms hanging inside lockers in that wreck...

    Over 800 men went down with the Tirpitz, I know that bones are still found today often scattered on the beach where they have been left by members of the diving public who have been searching the wreck area for souvenirs. This is unfortunately allowed by the Norwegian government, just imagine that being allowed here or in the States.....

    If this is true, perhaps we should begin storing all of our SS tunics, caps and other uniform pieces in sea water, oil and diesel fuel...it seems to be the finest textile preserver known to man...Apparently such things can be perfectly preserved indefinitely with this method.

    I think it's the U-534 that was salvaged from the Kattegat in the early 90's and now resides (in pieces) at Birkenhead.

    The artifact recovered still look very dirty, not in the condition of the cap. No way
