    Visibility on the wreck is apparentley near zero, divers very rarely dive on it as it has claimed numerous lives over the years due to fishing nets that cover the wreck, and the very strong currents within the River Plate, i believe that there was only one serious fully planned dive that recovered one item, one of the ships guns, i've never heard of the ships bell being recovered and i dont think it would have had the date of 1939 on it as it was commissioned much earlier

    On the top of Montevideo, there is an old Fort with many naval machine guns. A must to see!

    The 150mm gun was recovered back in '97, since then the gun ranging telemeter and a searchlight have been lifted as well, but, most spectacularly, in 2006 the 2m long, 500kg stern adler made of solid bronze was successfully salvaged. This rather puts the Reichsbahn railway eagles in the shade.....

    Great video Ned, thanks for sharing.

    The music could use a bit of updating though.
