My Grandmother's cousin was Paul Hunter, chief officer on the Empire Patrol at the time. Paul spoke to me only once of this terrible day when with tears in his eyes he recounted having to throw people into the sea to escape the acrid smoke. He received an MBE for his actions that day, but his pride in this honour was greatly marred by the terrible loss of life and that he had not been able to save more people. Reading your excellent website and seeing how so many of the survivors rebuilt their lives I am sure would have restored some of his pride.
