The Unexpected - Introduction

The Unexpected - Introduction

Unusual experiences, chance happenings - even a miracle - resulted in some of the most amazing stories to emerge from this project. Who would have expected enemies to become friends after a fire rescue? Or soldiers being saved from gunfire by items they carry with them? Or even, a religious icon in a bottle? One of the ongoing delights of this initiative is that so many of these items not only defy all easy categorisation, but may never have been shown in public before. Instead, they have been kept as family icons; mementoes of a time that has past and people who would never have existed without them.
