On this day in Our Islands History

In 1918, two men were heroically saved after they swept away from land while on the ice, near Grand Entry. Allen Clark (my grandfather Pop) crawled across the ice, with a rope, to the men, while Jack Keating fed the rope out. Clark and Keating received the medal of Carnegie for their heroism.

I absolutely love this blog. I can see that you have put a lot of work into it and it's beautiful. You make me want to move to the Magdalen Islands. Thank you so much for all the effort you've put into this. I will be back often.
Take care.
I will post a link on my page to this site.
