The Carpathia Titanic Rescues.

An interesting email was received on 09/03/13 from John Henderson in Wick whose grandfather was John Cargill, better known as the Sergeant and  born and bred in Gourdon where he lived in the village all his life.He was a fisherman primarily but he also spent time on Merchant ships, one of which was the Carpathia which I am sure you know was involved historically in rescuing most of the survivors from Titanic.John was bequeathed his medals and Dave Ramsay has now been in touch with him so watch out for more information relating to this story.
