On this day in 1847 the passenger ship Stephen Whitney was wrecked in thick fog off the southern coast of Ireland, killing 92 of the 110 on board. The disaster resulted in the construction of the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse. In 1918 The Western Union Cable Office in North Sydney, Nova Scotia, received a top-secret coded message from Europe (that would be sent to Ottawa and Washington, D.C.) that said on Novemeber 11 1918, all fighting would cease on land, sea and in the air.

On this remebrance Sunday we are going to Hawkes House inThornbury, the home of Billy and Mako Vunipola.

I doubt if we will see them today but route options below.
