Shannon Survivor's Letter of Thanks

To the Editor of ‘Lloyd’s’,

Sir, Will you kindly insert, through your valuable columns, my heartfelt gratitude to the Proprietors of Hildred’s Hotel, likewise to the inhabitants of Skegness, for the kindness shewn me, a survivor of the ill-fated Shannon, likewise expressing my utmost sympathy for the widows and orphans of my late comrades, and by publishing these few lines you will express words that lips fail to utter.

Yours, One of the Survivors (George Green, 9 Burcham Street, St Leonard’s Road, Bromley.)
