MIAMI: A United States (US) marine salvage firm has recovered virtually all of the silver bullion carried in a British cargo ship Gairsoppa that was sunk by a German U-boat off Ireland in World War II. The Odyssey Marine Exploration said it had pulled up 1,574 silver ingots from the SS Gairsoppa this year, or 61 tons. That is in addition to 1,218 ingots recovered last year.
