GIRL OVER­BOARD

Evergreen - - News - EILEEN HAL­L­I­DAY,

MADAM: I was very in­ter­ested in the “Sea Res­cue” let­ter from Moss Ten­ni­son (“Clip­pings”, Au­tumn 2016) about the lifeboat launch from the Dil­wara. My late hus­band, when on National Ser­vice, 1946- 48, re­turned from Malaya on the Dil­wara and kept notes and pho­to­graphs from his time abroad.

On the back of a post­card of the ship he had noted the mileage trav­elled each day, and against the en­try for 28th July 1948 it reads: “280. Girl over­board.”

Like Mr. Ten­ni­son, I hope the res­cued girl is alive and well. — YORK.
