William Henry Garing, Captain of the RAAF Sunderland which located the last of the lifeboats with Mary Cornish and others
August 10, 2010
I have found your contact details on the Web. I am the daughter of William Henry Garing who was the Captain of
the RAAF Sunderland which located the last of the lifeboats with Mary Cornish and others on board. I see that your web site says that it was a RAF Sunderland, but I can assure you it was my dad in a RAAF one. I have some information if you'd like it on how Dad found them etc. I also noticed that you had contact from a Joe Gingell in April 2010 who is writing a book - could you pass my contact details on to him? I am guessing by your email address that you are in Australia so here are my contact details:
Regards, Pip Byrne
Thank you for that, we will amend our AHOY piece accordingly.
Yes please I would love to have your Father's account of finding the boat carrying Mary Cornish plus others, it
will round out my piece on the City of Benares.
I have passed your E-Mail on to Joe and asked him to get in touch with you.
Yes I am in Australia, actually in Melbourne on St Kilda Road, my phone number is: 0395100128.
