last expedition of the lusitania earlier this year found that the royal navy tried destroying the wreckage with depth charges circa 1950's, as an unexploded depth charge was found clearly in the wreckage. there's also a few 'cheese' crates mostly intact, which may reveal what was really inside them. the british government won't comment, and has issued protests of anymore expeditions to the salvage site.
