Daniel Taylor (né Ferguson)

Apologies for missing deadline. Daniel, my grandfather, was involved in the Formidable disaster as a 16 year old apprentice on Brixham Fishing Smack, Provident BM 291 - saving 72 sailors from the warship which was sunk in the English Channel on 1st January 1915 by a German submarine. He was later in the Royal Naval Reserve (Trawler Section) for two years from 1916 till the end of the war after the fishing boat was sunk, also by the crew of a submarine who ordered them off before scuppering it. I would love to put him on the site along with his half brother Signaller John Miller 249394 whose record I have been updating today.
