Drowning Not Waving

I belonged to Yorkshire Sculptors Group who had a show at Scarborough Art Gallery in 2012/3. The theme was the WW1 bombardment of Scarborough which included the attack on the fishing fleet in 1916 when the fishermen where ordered off their trawlers, and so the German U bout could sink them. Fishermen tended not to have learnt to swim, so my piece is Drowning not Waving. All the men were saved.
