The Iím Aloneís connection to Trinity and the area is that it was captained by the famous Captain Jack Randell who was from Port Rexton, a community near Trinity. Captain Randell began his military career at an early age and fought in three wars: the Boer War and the First and Second World Wars. The latter two he fought in as a member of the Navy.

The story of the ship I'm Alonem Alone takes place between the Boer war and the First and Second World Wars when Captain Jack had a bit of down time. It was during the 1920s when the United States of America had a prohibition on alcohol in place that people got into the rumrunning trade. Captain Jack was one of these rumrunners and the attached documents will tell you a bit about the interesting life of this gentleman and the incident that happened in 1929 that caused some diplomatic dispute between Canada and the United States.
