    My grandfather was Norman Platt, the cook on the Pasanger when it was grounded in 1931. He was the crew member who swam ashore with a lifeline. Norman died in WWII when the fishing trawler, the Ladylove was sunk by a german u-boat. It’s amazing to see this little piece of my family history still alive.
