The Law of Salvage of the Sea

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sky Linky if I stuck this beauty on Ebay, how long till the police come knocking ?[​IMG]Its in the sea isnt it fair game, or its it classed as a grave site until the missing are found ?
     
  2. Seems the site is a crime scene.
    Plus the story has already been done elsewhere on Arrse.

    Why would you put a scuba diver on E-Bay?
     
  4. To go muff diving - way hey!

  5. No muff too tuff, we dive at five.

    The motto of The British International Muff Diving Championship Team :)
     
  6. It doesn't matter whether it is a war grave or not. Everything in the sea belongs to someone, which in reality means it belongs to the owners of the ship/their insurance company. If you, as salvor take something without first offering it to its rightful owner you are committing theft. In the UK the Receiver of Wrecks is your first port of call and they administer your find and the liaison between the salvor and the owner.
     
  7. Did you mean to do that?
     
  8. Of course - it's nice to see that someone is paying attention! ;-)
