Hello everyone

Hi all. Just a few words of introduction. I'm researching my fathers time at sea. He was junior Engineer on the MS Potaro from early 1945 until '46 or '47. Reading his diaries he was on the Russian convoys at the end of the war, then did a few trips to South America, Australia and New Zealand.

The ship was sold to a Greek company in 65 and renamed Aristipos and as far as I can see, she was then sold for scrap in Shanghai in 1970.

I'll search round the forums and post more info on relevant threads.

Thanks for having me!

Mike
