I am the widow of Thomas McCarthy.  We hosted the reunion In
(2006 - Wilmington).  My husband passed away in 2009 and I am
liquidating some of his belongings.  I have a very large print of the
Rockaway...custom framed and hang ready.  The photo print shows
many men on deck with great clarity.... 1966-68????  I am selling this
piece for $100 includes shipping to whomever would like to purchase
this at the reunion.  It has been wrapped securely for years for
protection. Please just let me know.... Thanks

Print of the Rockaway
This picture has been expanded to show many
parts of the ship.
The purpose of this article is to draw a
comparison of the events surrounding the
disaster of the Titanic to a similar set of
circumstances experienced by the crew of
the Rockaway during its return from Ocean
Station Able about the end of February,
by Gilbert B. (Gil) Leach, QM1, Sept 52 to
Aug 56.
