An Early Awakening
Charles was alone and unique. Unlike his family background, he wasn’t into the cotton industry at all. His life was much more outside a regular cotton mill like most of the British youngsters. He already had exciting plans in his mind and at the age of 13, he took a step closer to his dream life when he went offshores. A more adventurous life awaits Charles to bring out a legend of this young boy. Sailing through the Indian Oceans, at the age of 15 he encountered his first ship disaster when bad weather hit the ship on which he was working as a shipman. The ship sank but Charles survived for much more adventurous events to take place. There was something about this man, wherever he went whatever he does, adventures find its way to him.
