“I remember a close call when I was in a convoy of ships with enemy torpedoes heading our way. A torpedo missed us by inches, but hit and sank the ship next to us. We rescued those who were hit by lowering life rafts and helping the men to safety. It was scary as the torpedoes could have hit the rescue rafts but they didn’t . . . Thank God!”
