yes indeed sad event. remember now that our school caretakers son was an engineer on the windrush a Mr Turnbul. my oldest brother should have been on her but she had enough soldiers on board so he was transfered to the empire Orwell instead. However, many of his souveneers went down with the Windrush i believe..
