So exhibiting artifacts found at the surface is okay but anything from the wreck is ghoulish HOW

In the case of Britannic- I believe Simon Mills is indeed the owner-at he and/or the Greek government have say on who can or cannot visit the wreck- and whether or not items can be recovered-
I assume though, being in Greek waters, the will of the Greek government overrides that of Mr Mills.

Yes Tarn you are correct. Simon states in the post I referred to above that as the owner even he has to consult with the Greek department of marine antiquities prior to the retrieval of any artefacts.

Being interested in Titanic, I don't want any pillaging of items, but it is the height of hypocrisy to stand next to a ticket from some dead passenger's pocket and cry "foul" because someone else is displaying a dish taken from the bottom 75 years later. Or, on a more personal note---clarinet: 3 pounds sterling; ticket to see the clarinet at the Union Station/Science City exhibit in Kansas City: $42.00; tears that I shed as I looked at the clarinet played by a brave man who gave up his life for others: WAY BEYOND PRICELESS.
