Unable to find details of the Malplaquet, shown in port records as having made several calls to Lerwick, Shetland during May 1940, carrying troops and stores. Nrt shown as 219. Ports Orkney, Lerwick, Orkney.
There’s also a vessel shown as HMS Hafil, maybe a trawler? which I’m unable to find any details on. Again visits to Lerwick during May 1940. 245 nrt.
Any information on either of those two ships would be much appreciated.
Thanks
John

Hi John,
I suspect HAFIL is a typo. I cannot find anything by that name.
Regards
Hugh

Yes I did wonder if it was a typo as I could find nothing even close but the odd thing is that she made several visits and it was clearly spelt the same each time. One for the unsolved list I doubt! Thanks anyway.
