Seamen in Life raft



Type of Spiritual Experience


The following description was given by Phillip Brett DFC an airman shot down in the war on 6th may 1945.  There were two of them in a life raft, alone in the North Sea, without drinking water and food, they had been like this for some time and had lost hope of rescue, both of them were severely dehydrated.  This story appeared in Saga magazine.  The first hallucination was of sustenance, but more was to follow.

Remember – the composer gives us what we need at the time…………..

You will be pleased to know they were subsequently rescued by a Danish fishing boat and cared for with great kindness.
