    Default Empire Wave

    > AC1 William M. BOAL - 943541 - was aboard the C.A.M. merchantman Empire Wave

    My uncle John Cameron was Chief Officer of the Empire Wave when it was sunk. The story has been recorded here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqF7JThEeLE

    The pilot of the catapult plane helped my uncle launch his lifeboat - and presumably survived.
