Was Any Effort Made To Involve The RN & USN In Recovering The Dead ?



I was just wondering ...

Is there any record of anyone (prominent survivors, politicians, WSL, IMM) attempting to get the governments of Britain and the USA to have the Royal Navy and the United States Navy assist with recovering the bodies ?

Surely both navies could have easily spared an old cruiser or a survey ship ?

In any event full credit goes to the crews of the Mackay-Bennett, Minia, Montmagny & Algerine for what must have undoubtedly been an emotionally shattering experience for all of them.
