Daily Mirror front page headline reports death of Ernest and Mary Hemingway in African plane crash, January, 1954.

    Just for some added info...neither of them died in this crash...they both survived. Shortly after the publication of The Old Man and the Sea (1952), Hemingway went on safari to Africa, where he was almost killed in two successive plane crashes that left him in pain or ill health for much of his remaining lifetime. He and his wife bought a house in Ketchum, Idaho, where he committed suicide in the summer of 1961. His widow, Mary, died in 1986 (aged 78). :-)

    Thanks for the update, I was aware of most of what you have posted and maybe I should have added some info when I reposted it but I was just thinking " The news can really get it wrong sometimes"

  • Mary Thomas

    :-)...I figured you probably knew this already, especially since your last name in Hemingway...but just in case others who saw this didn't know I updated it! :-)

Hawaii Sunday morning and many military personnel have been given passes to attend religious services off base. At 0755 a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in an unprovoked assault. A total of 2,400 Americans were murdered,1,200 were wounded. The attack brought America into World War 2.
