“Mayday” Distress Call — ‘Revels’ (Cambridge) Explains The Origins.

by Anura Guruge

Click to watch/HEAR this dramatic & actual “Mayday”, “Mayday”, “Mayday” call from a pilot in trouble.

Click to ENLARGE and read here. From Revels’ e-mail newsletter “The eReveler”.

The above was in the Revels’ e-mail newsletter “The eReveler” that arrived in my inbox Tuesday morning.

The ever talented Mr. Patrick Swanson, erudite as he is, was using this “Mayday” introductory passage to lead us, gently, into May, Spring and the forthcoming 2018 Revels season.

I knew that “Mayday” had been introduced sometime after the sinking of the Titanic, but I was not familiar with the history. I had no doubt that Patrick would have nailed it. But, just for good measure I checked on Wikipedia. He is spot on.

Interesting. I thought you might enjoy learning about it.

Thank YOU, Patrick. You are such a treasure.
