Subject: RE: Concerning Franklin and His Gallant Crew - 1845
sciencegeek,
That's earth-shattering. Having read the account I am feeling very emotional. I have read lots of books on Franklin's various expeditions, some contemporary with events. I have watched the programmes on the exhumation of the bodies. I can't believe that they've found one of the ships and it seems to be almost intact as well. I'm going to sing the ballad at this weekend's Hull Folk Festival to celebrate the event, hopefully at the concert in the Maritime Museum.
