Finding important letters at home
Recently I was able to take a trip back home to Manchester and speak further with my parents about my project. They were able to find some copies of the letters that my great-grandmother received from Fred Allen and also a letter from the Goldfish Club office itself. It was so cool to see these in real life and read what Fred thought about my grandad and about his experience. It has helped me further understand him as a character.
I have attached some scanned copies of the letters below. I think I will find some way to bring them into the film, perhaps I will add in a section at the end about the men and their lives after the crash. This might be a good way to have the audience really understand why I made the film and think about the men as real people.
Below I have also attached some pictures I found of their living quarters and the only picture I could ever find of Jimmy.
