Because of May 10Th, 1980; the Flamingo Incident
The book, Because of May 10th, 1980; The Flamingo Incident is a detailed, personal account of the events leading up to, during and after the May 10th, 1980 bombing of the Bahamian military vessel the HMBS Flamingo. As a survivor of the attack, Farrington says that the book means a great deal to him. He wrote it a little at a time and sometimes cried as he recalled the events, and sometimes laughed remembering the good times he shared with his fellow crew members. The book was written so that everyone, especially the families of the fallen men and their children would know and appreciate the sacrifice that was made for the nation.
