Bradley and their families with the film November, the premiere of a filmed interview with survivor Frank Mays and Q&A with islanders who were here when she went down. The Bradley sank in a November storm off Gull Island on November 18, 1958. November Requiem tells the stories of the crew, their families and modern efforts to memorialize the wreck with a dive to recover the ships bell and bring it home to Roger’s City.
