The British had no objections to the Finns salvaging the vessels, as long they agreed to turn over any recovered confidential papers and ships’ logs, as well as the personal effects of deceased sailors. The Finns agreed, and the British gave them the hulks of the destroyers Verulam and Vittoria, which had been sunk during a single week in 1919. The Finns planned to raise and refit them, but abandoned the project because of the cost. By this time though, a better opportunity had arisen. 60 Unfortunately for the Finns, obstacles once again arose from surprising places.
