El Almirante Photo

20th March 2005, 23:14
I am trying to find a picture of a certain ship. The name of the ship is El Almirante. The ship was part of the Murmansk Convoy and was awarded battle stars. I believe the ship was built by Newport News Shipbuilding & DryDock Co. in 1917. She was lost on April 20,1943.
The reason this picture is important is because I am trying to put some facts to my father's life,He pased away when I was 7yrs old. He died in 1959.
His name is Francois Marie Guillaume Goarin, which was changed to Frank William Goarin when he became a U.S. citizen.
I would appreciate any and all help in obtaining a photo of this ship.

Thank you,Guy
