I am interested in finding out whether the men who managed to climb onto Collapsible B had worn life belts.
I have found Isaac Maynard in my family tree, and have been fascinated by his survival.
Would love to know more about what his story was. Did he have a life belt or did he get washed overboard without one?
Does anyone know?
Any help gratefully received
