I was born Dec 1940, so I was 9 or 10 years old at the time. I will be 77 this coming December. I made two round trips on the DC3. I admit, I do not remember much from my first 10 years, but I do remember flying in the DC3. We made those trips to southern Ireland by plane and the following year we went to Northern Ireland by the ferry boat. The boat trip was in a storm and everyone was seasick, strangely I was not. My father lost his false teeth over the side and my mother lost her glasses.
Unfortunately, that same ferry on it's return trip to Scotland, hit another storm and sank with the loss of all lives! These things anyone would remember. Needless to say, I was not on the return trip.
