View Full Version : Rossmore
12th September 2007, 19:26
Going through a few of my father's things, I came across a slip of paper in one of his Discharge Books, on which he'd written this:
12m NE of Godrevy Is.
I believe that the vessel was bombed and sunk.
Does anyone have any information on this, or any pics or details of the vessel.
