    OK to get the filthy Italian Lira (or scummy euros) we need a plan. First of all we need someone to go down and look for the ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle?). May I suggest we use Pentwyn as the weight to get the rope down? We would then have our own AOP (Arrse Operated Pentwyn). Once she/he/it has detected the lump of RN metal then she/it/he attaches the rope to our bit of booty and he/she/it sinks to the bottom of the lake. We pull said piece of metal to the surface and sell to the highest bidder. Double whammy!

    (Of course if they ain't Brits then we will take the money and renage saying come and get it if you think you are hard enough)
