It's 50 years today since the Wahine disaster took place in Wellington Harbour. A memorial service is being held in Eastbourne where many lifeboats made shore and where many bodies were recovered. Julian Webb was second engineer on the rail ferry Aramoana which helped with the rescue. He jumped in a lifeboat to help survivors make it to shore.
