- On February 16, 1941, Ernst Mengersen, Captain of Nazi U-boat 101, torpedoed the starboard side of the British merchant ship SS Gairsoppa, sending her to the bottom of the Atlantic. Little did Captain Mengersen realize that the value of the sunken ship's cargo would be worth almost a quarter of a billion dollars seventy years later.
- Odyssey Marine will keep 80 percent of the silver it pulls from the S.S. Gairsoppa, which was struck by a Nazi U-boat. The British government will claim the rest.
