Busily ice hunting during spring in California  ::)

Spotted this splendid and happy and brave short story in the log on the way through:



Northland 1931, Monday 30th March

1:10 William H. Davis, Qm.1c., rescued from drowning Theodore Silva, aged 8 years, of No 1711 - 24th Av. Oakland, the latter having, while wading near 9th Av. Municipal pier, gone beyond his depth and was in immediate danger of drowning. His cries attracted the attention of quartermaster Davis who dived off the end of the pier, swam to the boy and got him on shore in a semi-conscious condition as the result of shock and fright due to the immersion. He was revived and later sent home in charge of his companions.

 :D  :-* :D  I hope Theodore Silva lived to a ripe old age. And I hope he often thought a 'thank you' to brave Mr Davis :D
