Hi everyone,
I am interested in any thoughts or pictures of anyone connected with this ferry boat.My father-in-law was on this boat and I am trying to find out as much as possible as he did not talk about his experiences. As most of the men they buried away all those dreadful moments which they experienced.
I want my grandchildren to know what he went through with a little help from anyone who could contribute.

Welcome aboard, Doris.
I'm sure the crew will be able to help with your query.
Meanwhile explore the ship and join in.
Enjoy the voyage.
