Ss tilinsgton court

Hello. Would welcome information on the SS Tilsington Court.
My Uncle listed as a working on the boat in1937.
I believe it went from Liverpool to Vancouver.
As a long shot if anyone remembers him his name was Cryril Jack Manners.I think he was a Stoker.

Hello and welcome. He appears to have been noted as Jack Manners b. 26.3.1914, Aldershot and his Dis.A was R162928 - he was a Fireman & Trimmer.

He appears to have served in at least those ships named below.

UFFINGTON COURT – 29.12.1937
TREWELLARD – 2.11.1938.

We had to pay for our freedom
Then the Merchant Ship Sailors
Paid it in full”
