The quest for remembrance

In the second part of a special feature on the loss of the HMT Lancastria on June 17th 1940, we speak to some of the last few remaining survivors of the greatest maritime disaster in British history. This includes 101 years young Ernest Beesley  and the youngest survivor, Jacqueline Tanner, who was a mere toddler at the time. They, along with the families of victims, speak of their long struggle for proper official recognition of the Lancastria disaster.
