World War II Wreck Mystery in Plymouth Sound, England

From the September 22, 2013, BBC News: England "Quest to solve WWII wreck mystery in Plymouth Sound."

Three years ago, sports diver Danny Daniels discovered a plane wreck in Plymouth Sound and at first thought it was a German bomber.  But since then,it has been found to be an RAF Flying Boat, a Sunderland based at RAF Mount Batten.

It had crashed off Plymouth in December 1941 with 15 crew and passengers of whom only 4 survived.

Identification was made through its propeller and pieces of RAF insignia crockery.
