The second ‘Abandon Ship!’ story the Wellington team are focussing on is that of the cargo ship Richmond Castle. She was sunk by a U-boat in the Atlantic in 1942. 3 lifeboats got away. One had in it a young seaman called Angus Murray, from Stornoway. The boat’s sails had been lost, but Angus stitched two blankets together so that he could sail the boat – and he did, without navigational aids, for 3 to 400 miles, till all in the boat were picked up by the RN corvette HMS Snowflake. Other survivors who appear in our film are convinced they would have lost their lives without Angus’ cool skill and courage. If you’re in London, please come aboard Wellington (next to Temple tube on the Thames) to see the exhibition. Open Sundays and Mondays from May 21st , and free!
