My grandfather, Archibald Puls, was a survivor of the Tuscania. He was apparently one of the last ones off the boat. According to my father, he and another soldier were arguing about who was going to hold the rope and I think they both decided to jump. He has kept a lot of articles about survivor reunions.

My Grandfather was Worth L. Bushey. This is truly a Great Site.

I am Private Worth Bushey's grandson. I have been in touch with you before. Grandpa was one of the survivors of the Tuscania sinking and an original member of the Survivor Association. He was originally with the 1st Sanitary Squad and later re-assigned to the 7th Sanitary Squad of the 32nd Division, AMEX. If anyone has any pictures that might include my grandfather, I would be grateful for a copy. I believe I mentioned to you before that he made entries in his WW I diary about the event. We have donated his WW I effects, including the diary, to the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. They copied the diary and I have "transcribed" it so others can read it. grandpa's handwriting could be problematic to transcribe! I will gladly send you a copy via email. Also, the point of contact in the Veteran's Museum for his things is a Ms. Gayle Martinson. The project has a web page at: http://museum.dva.state.wi.us/AboutWVM_Staff.asp
