I am webmaster of sixtant.net website. I am trying to provide a full fledged account on all facts involving the operations in the South Atlantic scenario during the war. I have verified that 3 particular British ships were part of convoys OB 314 OB 320 OB 324. The SS Alfred Jones carried a cargo of RAF planes as well as SS Benvenue which carried 6 aircrafts on convoy OB 314 and SS Elmdene with 20 aircrafts on convoy OB 324. All these three ships were sunk however I could not find the exact number of planes SS Alfred Jones carried and the type of aircrafts. The same happens to Benvenue with 6 acft and Elmdene with 20 aircrafts but no type of planes. Besides those several merchants also carried aircrafts in their decks. If you can provide any information on these following ships it would be great.
SS EURYLOCHUS (16 HEAVY AIRCRAFTS)
SS GLOUCESTER CASTLE (AIRCRAFTS but do no mention type and quantity)
SS INCOMATI (2 AIRCRAFTS)
SS PRIMROSE HILL (11 AIRCRAFTS)
SS RABAUL (3 AIRCRAFTS)
SSTOTTENHAM (AIRCRAFTS AND AIRCRAFT PARTS)
SS TRAFALGAR ( 2 AIRCRAFTS)
SS BERHALA (AIRCRAFTS)
SS MARISO (4 AIRCRAFTS)
SS MARKEN (5 TRAINING AIRCRAFT)
SS MENDENAU ( AIRCRAFTS)
SS KG MELDAHL (AIRCRAFT IN CRATES)
SS MALOJA (87 AIRCRAFTS)
SS GEORGE CLYMER (24 AIRCRAFTS)
I would be greatly indebted if you could help me in this search, if there is any publication or site where much more details about the nature of cargo the merchants carried.

Kindest regards
