British Prince (ex Sutherland)

My father, William Redvers Forster (1900-75), was Chief Engineer on this ship, the first of the "Doxford Economy Ships" to be built in 1935 (see entry in the Directory) and remained aboard for one voyage after it was sold to Rio Cape Line Ltd (part of Prince Line) in 1936 and renamed BRITISH PRINCE.

Does anybody have details of its wartime sinking in 1940?
