I take it there were no army surplus stores back in those days. :P

Thank you #2! I was expecting a sunk transport as the origin but you went ahead and found the definite reference.

when you foto or film on land, you benefit by GPS coordinates, whilst when you in-flight or diving deep, nobody could say where actually those are.

#5 actually there is GPS coordinates for underwater, I live in Florida and go fishing at sunken ships and reefs that are marked by GPS.

What I don't understand is that, why didn't they just scrap all that metal, they could have melted it down and made many things out of it.

#6 They most likely didn't have the manpower or resources to salvage those, the manufacturing line was already spewing out Shermans by the thousands, and these were already lost. After the war it might've been an idea, but then again, lots of other things to prioritize when it came to rebuilding Europe.

I wonder why they never recyled the materials or parts.
