Hello - I realize this is an old post but I just recently began doing research on the Lord Talbot and the rescue mission. My grandfather was also a member of the crew. My father is now 90 and recalls stories of the rescue from his father. I would like any information you may have to share from your research and curious if you wrote your book? Thank you.Lord Talbot
Thank you! Yes, that's exactly the boat I mean.
Did I say I was trying to write up particularly my grandfather's work in saving the American Flying Family, and he took The Lord Talbot into 'iceberg alley' as he called it? September 1932 was the date. I'm planning on a fiction children's story as well as a non-fiction account, destined for the Aberdeen Maritime Museum.
I was in touch with the daughters of the Flying Family when I visited cousins in Florida. Janet Lee was at home and I phoned her. Exciting to talk to her.
Any info is more than welcome.
Apologies for not getting back sooner - I'm currently in Australia, and am just beginning to catch up on things.
what was the type of radio transmitter used? And the call sign? Where can I access this information? How many crew were on board? I've got a few photos, and some newspaper article info. but I need to be precise.
