yep its better late than never!!!!!!
the courage and sacrifice shown by Teddy Shean is remarkable especially considering he was only eighteen years old. to help launch the boats then ignore the order to abandon ship to return to the guns to provide cover for ya mates in the water being strafed and staying there til the very end after also being wounded is......well to be honest I cant really find the words except to say Never Forgotten
