Looking for family information on the death of Chief Officer Jack Hopkins (I have his Seamans Book No.). He signed on the Naringa in December 1945 in Bombay and signed off March 1946 back in Bombay, I assume he was sick or injured. Two months later May 1946 he died in Trincomalee Hospital. Why did he not get sent home ? why was he sent to Trincomalee ? Is there any BI records of what happened to one of their officers? His death certificate states Naringa as his last ship
