Going through Lerwickís port records for WW2 thereís an entry for RFA Maroia, or at least thatís what it looks like, the writing is often difficult to decipher! She arrived LK 13 July 1942 with a cargo of boom gear, no clues as to where from or where she sailed to. Nrt shown as 1159. I canít find any vessel of that name and was hoping someone on here might be able to identify her.
On a second point is there any forum on here thatís interested in WW2 submarines - I have a ĎFree Frenchí sub noted only as P19 that called along Lerwick during 1942 on a fairly regular basis but Iím blowed if I can track one down under this number and French flag.
Any suggestions welcome. Many thanks John
