Edwin "Taff" Angel
My namesake Edwin Angel survived the sinking of his ship. We discovered recently that he saved a friend's life by removing his boots and trousers, whilst in the sea. Taking to the water, in full kit, meant the colleague quickly became waterlogged and was sinking. My uncle was fortunately at hand to keep him afloat. Typically we were never told this by the hero. A letter received from the other survivor, unfortunately after my uncle's demise, gave us the story.
