1 of only 2 rescued from lifeboat

Signalman was 1 of only 2 rescued from lifeboat
A Marblehead veteran is rescued from the Dutch waship that he served in for the Battle of The Java Sea. It is an amazing story. Most of the US sailors who were "loaned" for signal purposes to the multi national fleet opposing Japan were killed when those ships were sunk. A memorial in Holland notes the names of some of these sailors, a couple of them were USS Houston crew - on loan.
