George Duffy sailed during World War II. His ship was sunk by a German raider off the coast of Cape Town and he spent twenty-eight days as a German prisoner of war before being handed over to the Japanese and transferred to camps in Java, Singapore, and Sumatra, where he survived working on the infamous "Death Railway."
