Now Jim Higgins is here. He's a seaman second class in the Radio 1 v4

When the Nazis struck Manchester in '41 Jim was employed in the
railroad station. He recalls the first raid vividly.
"A German bomber, fully loaded, crashed through the glass roof
over the tracks, hit the concrete and exploded," says Higgins, who "" t

Jimmy saw duty on the hazardous North Atlantic convoy route
"I was lucky," declares the Sailor, "I was never torpedoed. But I tI.S
came near to it more than once. I joined an old Greek ship at a port S
in Wales Now this old thing was 31 years old and was just about to
fall apart Shortly after leaving home the convoy was split up by \
sub action and we had to go our way alone. The old ship would only
do about 7'j' knots."

Higgins related how the Greek "tub"" survived the rough weather-- :. : j
"and then we hit a clear night." r. S
"As the boy awakened me to go on watch I heard a lot of shoutingand 1

the gun wouldn't fire any more and we had to throw out smoke flares w. :
over the side to hide our movements We stood by all night expecting to
have a torpedo put into us any minute-but nothing happened"
The Captain later discovered the sub had been disabled by his gun
fire and another Naval vessel finished it off the next day. eas ,
