…‘Before one sets out on a treasure hunt, one should be armed with a chart’…
Roland Morris had such a chart and upon it was marked the rock upon which the mighty treasure ship, Association sank!
In theses pages Roland Morris traces the loss of Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s warship in a terrible storm off the Scilly Isles and relates how he found the wreck and salvaged a remarkable treasure.
As rival diving teams closed in, local knowledge and professional skill won the author a harvest well worth reaping. Prized above all was the crested silver plate from which the ill-fated admiral once ate his last meal. This identified the wreck without question and won Morris worldwide fame.
