This event happened more than half a century ago, but means media it became known relatively recently … 11 February 2, 1945, at 2.20 a.m., the nurse on duty Boston Military Hospital ran out into the lobby and widely opened the door, hearing a piercing howl rushing “ambulances.” A minute later, the orderlies rolled into the reception hall stretcher compartments. – This guy’s name is Charles Jamison, and tell the doctors, ”one of the orderlies said shutting the door. Since the patient was barely breathing, the sister postponed the clearance documents in the morning and immediately contacted the resuscitation team. Arriving specialists stripped and examined Jamison. By the look the patient was about 45 years old, he was in a coma. Detected torn wounds on the back and legs were sore and launched; Moreover, the mysterious patient broke paralysis. Doctors noticed that on both forearms of Jamison flaunted identical and very skillfully executed tattoos: on the background of connected hearts American and British flags crossed.
Meanwhile, a nurse jumped out to question orderlies where this man was taken and where his documents disappeared and things – pockets tattered to shreds of a cheap patient suit were completely empty. However, the car caught a trace. Moreover, through several days it turned out that none of the city’s ambulance services help “did not send a single patient to the hospital that day! Treatment by treatment, but to find out the identity of a barely living person was necessary. Boston police detectives send out fingerprints Jamison’s Armed Forces, Navy and Merchant Fleet, FBI. Police interviewed all the drivers of “ambulances” and introduced them photo of a nurse, however, the woman did not recognize any of them. By time, the mysterious patient was recovering. He came out of a coma he was released a little paralysis, the wounds healed well. However he was silent. And this silence was very worrying for the doctors. For six months now he sat in his rocking chair and silently looked out the window … July 15 police investigation of the “Charles Jamison case” ended which gave nothing. Based on uniforms and a tattoo on one conclusion was made on the shoulders – Jamison was a sailor. Two years later sister, going into the chamber of Jamison, was surprised at his change behavior. For the first time in a long time, Jamison smiled happily and she said the words: “I just do not know!” Learning about the striking change, the head of the hospital himself arrived in the ward to Jamison Dr. Oliver William. Not knowing how long the patient can to talk, the doctor immediately began a conversation during which Jamison began to talk about incredible things, seemingly completely inaccessible to man of his position and education. So, he is in detail talked about William Gladstone (1809-1898) and Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881), as if he personally knew them, then began to recall Napoleon Bonaparte’s campaigns, especially in detail describing the battle 1805 near Austerlitz. Back at home, Dr. William immediately contacted the head of the british information service sir Elton Barker and invited him to a phenomenal patient. Elton Barker sat in a chair near Jamison and began to tell him about major naval battles of the English fleet. Then he pulled out portfolio of a bunch of drawings and handed them to Jamison. Thats carefully began to examine them and suddenly threw him onto the bed. – Do not make me laugh me sir. Four drawings with naval sleeve insignia are wrong! Jamison was absolutely right! Barker immediately put it in the hands of a sailor A pack of photographs of British bases and ships. Looking at them Jamison remained indifferent until he came across a photo Royal Marine Ammunition Depot. – I was here! – screamed he. – It’s in London, sir! Sea warehouse! – Charles, what are you you say impossible. How old are you? -Forty nine. – A snapshot was made 60 years ago … But Jamison suddenly started convincingly and with talk about the naval artillery school in Gosport with details, existing in 1850! He described the leadership of the school, facilities, study guides. The words of the sailor were later fully confirmed, when Barker studied the relevant documents. Then he handed Jamison catalog of warships 1900 edition. Finding a snapshot battleship Bellerophon, Jamison cried and handed the book to Barker. -“I sailed aboard this famous ship,” the sailor exclaimed. -I got on his team when Bellerophon just got off slipways … We took a combat course to Jutland … Dr. William was unspeakably surprised: – How, Charles, you participated in the battle at Jutland? .. – Yes, sir. We were in the convoy. It was a secret mission … “Doesn’t he know that the First World War ended in 1918? Is he still at that time, 30 years old back? ”Barker thought. Both scientists continued to question sailor about the battleship and Jutland, but he was gloomy and could hardly catch words. Obviously, like other sailors of the British Navy, he sought forget about the shame that overtook them on May 31, 1916 off the coast of Jutland. Barker once asked Jamison what his tattoos mean. -Sir, the crossed British and American flags symbolize our military friendship. This sign had all the sailors on the ship “Catti Sark”! It was the famous sailing three-masted clipper. The trial Barker allowed the most thorough inquiries about the Catti Sark. The ship was launched in 1869 in Scotland and together with other sailboats engaged in the transportation of tea. Then opened Suez Canal, and even the fastest clipper could not compete with by steamboats. Therefore, in 1872, Cutty Sark was redirected to transportation of English wool. Then the ship was bought by one firm in Lisbon Note in the newspaper about the mysterious sailor from Boston the hospital attracted the attention of one naval officer who had previously served on the Ledgen transport. – Check the ship documents of this transport! he said to Barker over the phone. – I think I remember a sailor with the surname Jamison. Experts from the American Service immigration found a strange entry in the documents. In her it was said that Charles Williams Jamison was picked up … at sea! IN the list of persons on board the transport, it was entered in Southampton January 24, 1945. Legen arrives in Boston 9 February 1945 What surprised the experts is that all the entries in the document were typed, and the data regarding Jamison, handwritten in ink. When they found the former captain “Ledgen”, he was also surprised, but could not explain anything. It was against all the rules – write by hand. The captain was convinced that the recording was done later. The official record said that Jamison was prisoners of war, picked up on the high seas. The author of the entry, however, didn’t explain how Jamison got into the sea and how long he stayed in water until he was lifted onto the ship. Dr. William showed Jamison’s shots of “Legen”, but he only indifferently glided around his gaze without saying anything. Then came the information yet more confused business. Dr. William asked for the Cutty Sark story in Lloyd’s register. Among the documents was a report that 10 July 1941, the German submarine “U-24” noticed a three-masted ship with the inscription “Cutty Sark” and ordered him to lie down in drifting. Instead of answering, the clipper gave a volley of eight airborne guns. A minute later, a torpedo launched by a fascist submarine, sent a sailboat to the bottom. The crew of the submarine pulled out one sailor, floundering among the wreckage, aboard. It turned out to be a sailor Charles Jamison, who was brought to the port and sent to the camp prisoners of war in Belgium. A few more months passed. Somehow Dr. Williams spoke with his patient. Suddenly Charles grabbed notebook and quickly wrote the words “Hinemoa.” – This is another ship on which did you serve? Jamison nodded his head.
– “Hinemoa” was a cargo ship carrying nitrates from Chile to British ports. I was on board when a German drowned him submarine … Lloyd’s register files did store information about the small cargo ship “Hinemoa”, the ship survived the Second World War war, but in 1945 due to heavy wear and tear it was towed in sea and blown up. Charles Jamison died in 1975. No one ever could understand if his revelations were a figment of a sore imagination or were a person’s real life experience, unknown way to stop time …
