Bell recovered from sunken battleship
LONDON- The bell from the famous HMS Hood battleship sunk by the Nazi's during World War II was recovered with the help of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
The Hood went down in the North Atlantic with almost its entire crew of 1,418 men. The Hood was once the largest warship in the world and was the Royal Navy's symbolic flagship. It was sunk by the German battleship Bismarck in 1941 and just three men survived. The wreck is at a depth of 9,186 feet in the Denmark Strait between Greenland and Iceland.
A first attempt to recover the bell failed in 2012 and this second try was done by a remotely operated vehicle.
Britain's Royal Navy and Allen's website confirmed the recovery on Friday.
