AngloDoes anyone remember the grounding of an 18ft jolly-boat that had been drifting for 70 days - and 2,300 miles. Apparently a farmer named Martin found the boat on Wednesday, 30th October, 1940. The two men survived...recovering in Nassau where they were seen by the Duke & Duchess of Windsor. I am researching the events here in the UK. I would be grateful for anone who has any memories ir information. Thank you
