    Yes a sad story if you are connected to one of the victims in some way Ray. It has bought to mind an account that I was reading about last night, of the 'Queen Mary' while she was being used as a troop carrier, loaded and heading at full steam in the Atlantic for the U.K.and rammed her way through the Cruiser 'Curacao', surged straight over the top of it and acting on what was regular orders in those days, did not stop but tossed life saving equipment into the water. 338 men died on the Cruiser and reports on the incident said that just a tremor was felt as the 'Queen' went over it!!
