Sir: Your report on the taking of items from sunken German submarines off the Yorkshire coast, was of considerable interest ("Divers raid seabed war graves for `trinkets' ", 11 November). As a family member of mine was lost at sea in HM Submarine Stratagem, sunk 12 December 1944 in the Straits of Malacca by enemy action, it seems that the time has come for all wrecks containing human remains to be protected by law.
