20Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. "

Just before 4 am, CROSS Etel was informed that the Asgard was sinking and the crew was taking to the liferafts. ...

(farmer: Troy today lies in Turkey, very close to Bandirma, where the other ship sunk Sunday night!)
