Errol’s Captain?

01 Sep

One Beveridge Too Many?

From the Daily Mail:

“Mr Cooper is a survivor of the infamous Marques disaster that left 19 drowned in 1984.”

“Speaking to the Times, Mr Cooper, a veteran ocean sailor who once captained a ship for Hollywood film star Errol Flynn, continued: ‘We realised the boat was not sinking and that the best place to be was on board. We sat it out until the waves pushed us far enough onto the reef to be away from the breakers.”

[I believe this is likely a misstatement by the Daily Mail, not by Mr. Cooper, who likely said he was captain for one of Errol’s (former) ships, not for Errol himself.]
