Thereafter his discharge book is blank until it shows him signing on with the SS Twickenham on 30 October 1940. Written in pencil is a note to say the blank will be filled in at a later date.

I have a complete record of his service at sea from 24 January 1920 to 5 August 1941 when he was brought ashore to be the assistant superintendent engineer at Newcastle, except for the 'blank'

I would very much appreciate it if anyone could fill in the blank and also give me any information about the Izgled.

Thanks in advance.

Peter Cross.
