    The Wreck of the Jeune St Charles and the Bravery of Men from the Howe and Port St Mary.

    On 8th April Rushen Parish Commissioners will be commemorating the 150th anniversary of an act of heroism by men from The Howe and Port St Mary who, at great risk to themselves, rescued some the crew of the Jeune St Charles from certain death in the treacherous waters of The Sound. The rescue took place on the morning of 8th April 1858 in dreadful conditions
