SS DAVID McKELVY: TWO CREWMEN ENDURED

I've dabbled in what I call my "hobby writing" in offering 'Nautical Articles' as well as 'Ship Histories' from the WW II era or before, over a few years, and the one thing that always gives me goosebumps is when I uncover a story about individuals being left on an abandon ship....and it is questionable if anyone knows they are there.

Well here is one of those stories about a burning tanker that had been torpedoed by a U-boat....everyone else abandon this ship...but two crewman...to save their butts survived this burning tanker .....until being rescued the next day.

If you care to give this one a read just click on the below link.
