I can only imagine how hard it is to re-hash his experience. This is a story that really makes me squirm! What a horrible ordeal! It's bad enough being torpedoed, but then, your own people don't bother looking for you for days on end when you expect rescue. And then there's the sharks........

What a truly horrific chapter of WWII.
