Sealing stoires

This year is the 100 anniversary of the SS Newfoundland sealing disasters.  Ten Pouch Cove men "went to the ice" aboard the SS Newfoundland and five of them perished.  Three Jordans were amongst the deaths.  Angela Wall remembers her Uncle Steve (one of the survivors) was deeply affected by the incident because he was the one that told his brother and nephews not to go ....  I am making a video and am hoping to share that during the commemoration in March.
