I am CDR over EOD and Diving team in the Icelandic Coast Guard
A week ago we found the wreck of the four-engined plane at 45 meters depth Faxaflói.
Upon further examination revealed that this is a B-24 Lebrator probably GR. VI EV895 from 53 Squadron who died November 18, 1944

Is this the first time this plane has been discovered?
It appears it was lost with all the crew of 10. Were any bodies found or should the site be declared a war grave?

These were my thoughts to. What is the process for declaring the find?
