To Orwell Today,
re: ORWELL'S CORRYVRECKAN WHIRLPOOL & PETER PICS ORWELL'S WHIRLPOOL
I am writing to you from Portland, Maine with, perhaps, and odd inquiry. I work for a film production company here, called Lone Wolf Documentary Group. We are making a film called Underwater Universe in which we will dedicate a section of the film to Maelstroms. I have been reading about George Orwell's stay on Jura and the incident in the Corryvrechen Whirlpool. I wondered if you could help me locate his nephew, Henry Dakin, so that I may speak to them about the incident. I greatly appreciate your time and assistance.
I'll post your email on the website and perhaps Orwell's nephew, who was in the boat with him when they were sucked into the Corryvreckan Whirlpool, will come across your request and be in touch.
My newfound friend, Peter Powell, RIP, lived next door to Orwell's flat in Islington and conducted Sunday tours of Orwell's haunts in that area. Peter said that Henry Dakin came to one of his tours one time.
All the best with your film,
