Obit du jour: Bess Cummings

What a tale! Just to tempt you:

For nearly 20 hours during the night and day that followed, Bess Walder and Beth Cummings, with only their adrenalin to sustain them against cold and exhaustion, clung to their overturned lifeboat in the stormy seas; they were clad only in pyjamas and dressing gowns.

A reminder that you never know what your teacher did when she was your age. Wow!
