HMAS Perth artifacts / so-called ‘grave robbing’ OR, more accurately, HISTORIC ARTIFACT RETREIVAL.

Now, for those without a huge bias on their shoulder, or blinkers on their eyes / mind, may I suggest you actually read ALL the words under the photos (especially image #1) to see what the ‘authorities’ think of Mr David Burchell’s (a proud Australian!) retrieval of said artifacts when he discovered the wreck back in 1967.
WELL DONE Mr Burchell!
And then think of all the other similar historically priceless artifacts that have since been lost forever (in the Java Sea alone) in recent years to illegal commercial salvagers due to the short sightedness of so many.
