A suction device lifts the bell from the sea floor during the successful expedition

SEATTLE, WA and PORTSMOUTH, UK, August 8, 2015 – A research team led by US philanthropist and entrepreneur Paul G. Allen has successfully recovered the bell of the battlecruiser HMS Hood, sunk in 1941 during World War II. Once restored, the bell will respectfully serve as a tangible and fitting memorial for the 1,415 lives lost when the Bismarck sunk the ship in the North Atlantic.
