OZZY OSBOURNE BIT THE HEAD OFF A DOVE. WILLIAM HALFORD STRANGLED AN ALBATROSS AND FED FOUR PEOPLE.
MOH Winner William Halford describes his experience during a rescue mission to the Hawaiian Islands from the wreckage of the USS Saginaw:
“Then, when our provisions had run out entirely, a large bird came and landed on the boat and looked at me as I stood at the tiller. The other four at this time were very weak from want of food and from dysentery; they were more dead than alive. I caught the bird, tore off the feathers, cut it up in five pieces, and we all had a good meal. It was raw, but it tasted good.”
