News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

SS Richard Montgomery
« Reply #1 on: June 02, 2008, 19:22:09 »
Frank Turners wrote a booklet about the Richard Montgomery which is very informative.

I was advised by a reliable source a few years ago that following a lot of post war arguments between the US and UK as to who was to blame for putting the Montgomery on a too shallow mooring the US govt paid the UK the cost of a tidy up operation, but insisited that Britain undertook the operation.

The govt very conveniantly spent the funds on an at the time more pressing needs.

I have also heard rumours of 'dirty weapons' being on board.  This would perhaps explain the reluctance to clear the wreck.
