Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, John.
I'm sure someone will be along soon that can help or point you in the right direction.
Find your way around and get to know the crew.
Have a good voyage.

Hello John Boyd,

My grandfather was also lost on the Croupier that fateful day and I have some information on the crew and an extract from an Icelandic book detailing the rescue attempt at the time. If you email me at [email protected] then maybe we can share the information together. From the information I have, your grandfather must have been T Clark who was 43 at the time and lived at 67 Bridge Street South.
I will look at the info I have in various folders and put it all together to send as an attachment
