I discovered recently that my grandfather died when his ship, SS Tregarthen, was torpedoed. He was a Fireman/trimmer and I have become obsessed with what his working life was like. I would be interested in looking at plans for a tramp steamer of this kind and would appreciate any help in finding them
Thanks
My father

My father served on SS Tregarthen but was lucky enough to get shot by a plane when on the deck and put ashore in Oban shortly before it was sunk. I visited the memorial near the Tower of London and found the plate listing the crew. A nice place to visit.
