Happy Birthday!

Postby EvilEmperorZoRG GR » Fri Mar 30, 2012 4:29 pm

Today marks the 138th birthday of Charles Herbert Lightoller, an extraordinary man and a hero from the Titanic disaster. Somebody who led a very adventurous life. Not only did he help save lives on that terrible morning of April, 1912, but he risked his own life by sailing his boat, the Sundowner, into harms way in the face of enemy gunfire, rescuing 130 men off the beaches of Dunkirk during World War II. May we remember his life this day. And may God Bless him and his family.

There's a group on facebook, dedicated to Lightoller and his life! I learn many new things there every day. Even Lightoller's great grandson is there posting many pictures from his personal albums ;)
