Does anyone know if the only survivor of the Ceramic disaster gaves his account after being rleased as a prisoner of war?
My Dear Boy was our all I feel I haven't got nothing to look for now.
I am enclosing his photograph, hoping that if you didn't know him by name, you will recognise his face.
Will you please let us have the photograph back, because it is the only one which we have...
I'm so sorry to have worried you in the first instance, but you see my Husband was my whole life and I'm waiting & praying that by some miracle he will one day come back. Your letter, & newspaper cutting with photograph, are amongst the few items I treasure most. You might have known him.
They were just newly married, he would be about 32 years of age when he sailed, and his wife somewhat younger...was of medium height, slim build, and fair complexion and wore glasses.
I've been researching and writing about maritime history for quite a few years now. Because of the nature of my work, many books about ships and the people connected with them cross my desk. Quite a few of these deal with the more tragic aspects of maritime history - even outside my obvious interest in the Titanic and Lusitania.quote:
it must be a great work of sympathy on your part dear Eric to take on all the letter writing it is going to mean replying to all the anxious suffering people who are left in this world as a result of their dear ones being on that ill fated ship...only we who are down in the deep hell of it all can appreciate what you are doing & thank you with all our hearts.
