The list page: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls068853315/...
What is on that page:
"Why? Because both historical events, that those films are based on, involved the same person, Charles H. Lightoller. He was the 2nd Officer aboard the Titanic and he, with his yacht, the "Sundowner", was apart of the rescue of the solders trapped on the Dunkirk beach to which his own son was one of them. Which is the best? Click here to discuss him, those events and these films."
What is not on that page was that during World War One, Lightoller became a twice decorated officer/hero of the British Navy. He survived more than one sinking ship. But his life was not without scandal and controversy. His life would make one hell of a movie! To read up on him start with https://www.historyanswers.co.uk/peop... But that does not comes close to what this man lived through. http://www.williammurdoch.net/mystery... And https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org...

That was supposed to read that I'm happy that I can give some recognition to this man who had lived through so much.

Thank you. For good or bad, this man had an eventful life and a lot of people wouldn't be here today if he didn't do what he had done on Titanic or at Dunkirk.
