RAF transport to Canada WW11

Hi from Wales
I’m researching my family tree. My father was deployed to Canada during WW11 he went out I think in 1941 on a ship that was originally called the Ruhrhind but was renamed. I would like to know the name of the ship and ideally have a photo of it. He returned in 1944 on the SS Ile de France I would also like a photo of it and any other information if possible

If you google "New York Social Diary" there is lots of info on the Iie de France and photographs. May I suggest you check the spelling on the Ruhrhind. Regards (C)

I think you could be right it probably is the Ruahine. I will investigate it. Many thanks
