Following my initial research into the disappearance of HMS Exeter certain threads of evidence led to the wreck of Perth; I now have questions regarding the wholesale salvage of both. I'm certainly interested in asking a number of individuals questions I've developed regarding these salvagings, pero son tan temerosos como el día es largo. I've also visited both the local British and Australian Consulates-General (they're conveniently co-located) and have been invited to establish communications with those authorities on this--ongoing, in their view--matter.
As was mentioned earlier there was a time when honorable divers like Burchell exhibited a good faith effort to preserve the past, not to plunder. Sadly, those days are gone.
