Mordant being the right word (as in mordre - to bite). Oddly enough, in the late 70s, some of the West German navy's clearance divers went to Bikini and recovered one of the Prinz Eugen's propellers, which they brought back to Germany and installed at the first world war sailors' memorial on the Baltic.


There's some good wreck diving at Bikini now the background radioactivity's fallen away. Don't eat locally-grown vegetables though.
