I wonder if anyone can help. I am looking for details of the incident off Shanghai in 1949 when the Anchises was bombed and run aground. Mainly ineterested if anyone has a crew list from the voyage and who the four injured persons were. My mother is trying to trace some details of her father who was Chief Officer on the vessel at the time.
