Hi PJ,

A quick search on the net found the following:

http://www.warsailors.com/convoys/sc97.html refers to the Radport being part of a convoy that departed Halifax Aug. 22-1942 and arrived Liverpool on Sept. 7

http://www.rapidttp.co.za/museum/jmmc/jmmcf.html may lead you to a photograph (which you would have to pay for) - gives the following data - "FEDERIKO GLAVIC freighter 5269/1925 in 1936 & '38 (1970 scrapped)"

http://www.convoyweb.org.uk/oskms/index.html?os070.htm~osmain has brief details of another convoy in which Radport sailed in 1944.

http://www.warsailors.com/convoys/on34.html Another convoy in 1941.

Not much meat in there but its a start!
