When I was young, my father had a monkey fist with a short eye splice for a handle. He brought it back from the Pacific. U.S. Navy, WWII. I was always fascinated by it. Then I learned to splice in the Boy Scouts. Now at 44 I have a small sail boat and thought I should learn more. For the past 6 months I've been tying knots and stitching canvas in my free time. I enjoyed your website.

My uncle, Basil Forward, served on the Athel Victor, during WWII, and was on board when the explosion took place in Lagos. This and the effects of a later sinking, where he was picked up and the rescue/capture vessel was again sunk, and he spent many days afloat in a lifeboat, resulted in his having blackouts and shell shock. I would be very interested to hear from anyone who can let me know more about an event like this, because I do not know the specific details. I would like to know what the Athel Victor looked like. Be Well Raymond
