    Good article on the Pacific shipwrecks and their ongoing discoveries.
    "As Europeans danced in the streets on VE Day in May 1945, bitter fighting still raged across the skies and waters of Asia. It was not the end of World War II. The white flag was only waved for good on Victory over Japan Day on the 15 August 1945 – 75 years ago today.
    Fighting spanned Asia-Pacific waters from Hawaii to north-east India, where more than 3,000 warships ended up crashing onto the bottom of the Pacific. In recent years the hunt for these memorials has turned up trumps thanks to cutting-edge technology and deep charitable pockets."
