About the Tilly L. M. Russ
Posted by: nuzzmark
I just found this site as I was looking up info on the Tilly L. M. Russ. It's probably a long shot, but I was looking for any info on relatives of Italian or German sailors that were on that ship when it was sunk. You see, my father, an Italian sailor, was a survivor. He passed away on January 20, 2011 at the age of 88. I am his daughter, an only child. He told me many stories bout that ship & what happened the day it was bombed. He said the was a dog that stayed on the ship that the sailors named "Tilly". As you can probably imagine, this is very emotional for me to talk about. I just wondered if there was anyone with any info they could share.
