the British Pacific Fleet. My ship HMS Activity
picked up a boat load of men from a torpedoed
US ship. They had been adrift for 3 weeks and
and could not have survived much longer.
A short time after this we received a message
from the US Navy Dept stating that due to the
danger our ship had been in by stopping while
the enemy submarine was still in the area
the whole of the ships company had been
awarded the Silver Star.
Nqw 75 years later I and rest of the crew
await the award.
I have a feeling I am the last man standing
from that old tub 'The Activity'.
