"Brothers of the Deep"
This past week at OMSA I managed to work out a trade with another Forum
member. It was not till after we completed the deal that it was noticed the two
Submariners went down together. Geographically, Sailors Gardner and Laws were
from the same area, but at this time their worlds would have been nothing alike.
Now they rest together as "Brothers of the Deep"...RIP
