    Today while chatting with my co-workers I spoke of the time my father and grandfather who sunk off Bermuda....looking on the internet for info to show them I found this video...a big surprise indeed.

    Many thanks for posting the video...that was my father and grandfather that were part of the crew on the boat that sunk

    As for the person Mr .Alex Macinnes, thank to you. Being born myself in 1967, without his help I very well may not have been here in this world along with my 5 other brothers/sister

    Small world isn't it. An action of one person can so affect the lives and future of others.

    That is surely a good example of what good, honest, and brave actions can do that can be told to your children.
