The Avila Star was a sister ship of the Almeda Star which was sunk by U96 on 17th January 1941 with the loss of all on board, including my brother. The Avila Star was sunk on 5th July 1942 by U201, which seven days later sank the Sithonia on which my father was serving. He survived after more than two weeks in a lifeboat.
