Anyone out there know the name of the sole survivor of the sinking of the north east collier ss.Joseph Swan by an e-boat off Norfolk in 1941. I have complete list of those who lost their lives and even the German captain

I have JOSEPH SWAN sunk 4/Sept/1940. She has a survivors report at Kew in the the piece ADM199/2134 page 12.

Before getting touch with Kew. Try a PM to Hugh Maclean he may have a copy.

regards
Roger

I am sorry Tim, I don't have a copy of that file unfortunately. The survivor's report should give you that information and also the last crew agreement held at Kew in BT 381/1190.

I note there is a file in BT 373 which is a POW record. Was he taken prisoner? I can't find anyone on JOSEPH SWAN in my POW records.

Regards
Hugh

ss Joseph Swan

Tim.

By chance I am doing some research at The National Archives for a client, who is related the the sole survivor of the ss Joseph Swan. The survivor's details are:

Robert Wright Beattie,discharge number A1093145, born 07/08/1908 at South Shields.

Just to add the ship was sunk on 04/09/1940 when part of convoy FS 271, not in 1941.

Cheers
Alan
