A friend has asked me for information on this Dutch vessel. He was Radio Officer on board 30/12/43 - 28/1/44 when he says they were torpedoed N of Scotland.I can find nothing of this. Could it have been a mine ?
Grateful for any information please.
Many thanks Raymond for those excellent photographs.
My friend joined this ship in Avonmouth on 30/12/44 and they then sailed North to join a convoy for the States. Off the Hebrides he was awakened by loud bump and they took to the boats but reboarded when the ship didnt sink He then thinks they then drifted on to rocks but a Tug arrived and towed the ship to Liverpool for repairs where he signed off. He remembers seeing a huge hole in the ships side in front of the Mainmast.
Thats all I know.
