The bullion stash said to be hidden by retreating Nazis in 1945 has been the stuff of dreams ever since. Some say it's buried in a bunker, other say it's aboard a buried train, but a diver believes it is aboard the wreck of the ocean liner pressed into service as a refugee ship, MV Wilhelm Gustloff, and sunk by the Russians beneath the icy surface of the Baltic Sea.

Former professional diver, 61-year-old Phil Sayers, says he met a survivor from the sinking, ship's radio officer Rudi Lange, who told him he saw crates of Nazi gold being loaded onto the ship at a port in Poland before its ill-fated voyage. It was the same man who, at 17 years old, sent the SOS after the liner was torpedoed by Soviet submarine S-13.

So all that is needed is to locate the wreck. One other snag: It's 1462 feet (450m) deep.
