My grandad, Harold Gibson was a Survivor of the Laconia Incident. Unfortunately, he has since passed away. I know that there was a documentary made by an American producer called Nigel Turner but Im keen to learn any more on the subject. Im not sure of the names of any other survivors. My great uncle Walter was a barkeeper on the Laconia. He survived the sinking but later died in a lifeboat. A complete listing of crew members and armed service personnel; their last address and survival status and can be found in the appendices of The Sinking of the Laconia: A Tragedy in the Battle of the Atlantic by Frederick Grossmith. ** My Grandad was also a survivor- Edward Marling...any questions email me! ** Hi, My name is Nicola Hurst. I work for a UK television production company called TalkbackThames. Our drama department are producing a prestigious feature length drama film written by Alan Bleasdale for BBC2 about the Laconia Incident. I work for the specialist factual department at Talkback. We are hoping to produce a documentary that will accompany the drama and feature first hand accounts from survivors of The Laconia Sinking, telling their own extraordinary stories. We are passionate about documenting this tragic event, which illustrates so well the courage and humanity that can persevere even in times of war, as well as the Horror. I am so keen to find out if there are any living survivors of this horrendous event and would be so grateful for any help with this. My direct telephone number is: 020 7861 8337. Thanks so much, Nicola.
