Whilst researching the Dutch submarine BRUINVIS that I saw in Barcelona in 2006 I came across a very interesting film clip of USS COD's salvage attempts on the 019 in 1945.

The information on the incident and photo history of USS Cod SS224 contained in a book called USS COD WW11 Submarine Memorial, Oxford Museum Press inc, Ohio.

Visit Oxfordmuseumpress.com, also usscod.org.

The book, softback, is very good and cost 10 sterling from White Ensign Models, their website WhiteEnsignModels.com . They are situated in Leominster, Herefordshire, mail order only.

Hope the extra information is of help to you
