Hi Thanks Bruce. Seem as all “AKA” ship’s was motor ship and “C2-S-B1” were steamers. AKA “Attack Ships” ? There are stories about they were “Spy Ships”. The radio room on one of Johnson Lines ship must have been very well equipped during the war and equipment removed afterwards. Live electric cables poking out from the walls in the Radio Room. Suppopsingly one of those ship was detained in Singapore sometime in the 60’s because the radio room was dangerous to enter due to all cables. (If true it must been really bad if a ship got detained in the 60’s.)
