WWII SURVIVORS OF THE JERVIS BAY

Four survivors of the HMS "Jervis Bay," who were rescued by a Swedish freighter and landed at an East Coast Canadian port, tell their heroic story to the Canadia public over the radio, on November 15, 1940. When a convoy of 38 merchant ships, loaded with vital supplies for Great Britain, came under attack by a German warship, the British armed merchant cruiser gallantly fought to save 29 ships of the convoy, before she sank in the Atlantic. From left to right are : George M. Squires, Henry Lane, George Crowson, radio announcer W.L. O'Reilly, and Sub- Lieut. J.G. Sargeant. (AP Photo)
