The Holland 5 submarine was the first submarine commissioned by the Royal Navy. Are there plans to raise and preserve that wreck before it's too late?

The way British museums are going right now, leave it be until HM Government recovers its senses.

Well they already have one of the early Hollands in Gosport, restored to as close as they can get to in service condition. They have the last surviving (above water) WW2 built submarine parked outside. And we still have every nuclear submarine we ever built waiting decommissioning or turning into museums. Unlike the Surface fleet, you could say the Subsurface fleet as something of an embarrassment of riches. So probably not. I dont suppose they would object if a rich benefactor decided to haul it up. it would need one to stablise its condition.

 

Wouldnt any of the US museums be interested in an early Holland? Im not sure any of them have one.
