  • Description

    AN ANTI-CASTRO AMERICAN, JERRY BUCHANAN, SEIZED BY BRITISH AUTHORITIES WITH SIXTEEN CUBAN COMPANIONS IN THE BAHAMAS ON SUNDAY (MARCH 31) CLAIMED THE GROUP HAD BEEN BETRAYED - PROBABLY BY AN AMERICAN.

    A BOAT, "VIOLYNN THE THIRD", WHICH WAS REPORTED TO HAVE MADE MANY TRIPS TO CUBA WITH ANTI-CASTRO FIGHTERS AND SUPPLIES, WAS ALSO CAPTURED, BY THE BRITISH FRIGATE "LONDONDERRY".

    THE BOAT'S OWNER HAS PRODUCED THESE FILMS OF THE "VIOLYNN THE THIRD" AND ANOTHER COMPANION BOAT, "SIGMA TWO", WHICH BELONGS TO THE ANTI-CASTRO "ALPHA 66" GROUP.

    A UNITED STATES COAST GUARD PLANE WAS FILMED PHOTOGRAPHING BOTH VESSELS AND LATER, AFTER THE "VIOLYNN" HAD RUN OUT OF GAS, WAS TOWED TO KEY WEST BY A U.S. COAST-GUARD CUTTER.

    BUCHANAN CLAIMED BRITISH POLICE HAD BEEN TIPPED OFF THREE DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THEIR STOP AT NORMAN KEY. CUBAN REFUGEE REPORTS THAT A U.S. NAVY PATROL PLANE ALERTED THE BRITISH HAVE BEEN DENIED IN WASHINGTON.
