I have a little more of a connection to the story as the ship ran aground off Iceland during WWII in a bad storm. My mother is from Iceland and her best friendís father was a fisherman. He rescued a large number of sailors from the ship, the weather and sea was so bad that no one else dared to go out except for him. He received a medal for his efforts from the King of England. My motherís friend tells the story of how her dad came home covered in oil head to toe after hours and hours of pulling sailors out of the sea and ferrying them back to land. His fishing boat is now in a museum in Iceland. Survivors and other Canadians have come up to Iceland on the anniversary, the 75th is next week and she was telling us there was a new group of Canadians returning. She got a kick out of the fact that I have fished the river that the ship was named after that her father rescued so many men from. Anyway an interesting read and story.
