Hello,Convoyweb movements list for her doesn't have any entry between her return to Glasgow from WS 3b and setting off again at the end of June 1941 in WS9b.
This corresponds to description in P&O record. It is possible she just remained in Glasgow awaiting the next outward troop convoy.
Yeah, thanks for that. I knew as soon as I posted I should have checked further to see if we were talking about the same ship. My bad everyone and apologies.:sweat:johnmw1, the vessel mentioned above was torpedoed and sunk 9.10.1942. The ORONSAY you sailed on was built 1951 and scrapped 1975.
She was repaired by 5/12/1940 left London 20/12/1940 for Sydney sailing through the med , she obviously wasn’t laid up until June 1941P&O Archive has:
"08.10.1940: En route for Egypt with a troop convoy when she was attacked by aFocke Wulf bomber off the northwest coast of Ireland. Escorted
back to Glasgow for repairs where she stayed until June 1941.
28.06.1941: Sailed from Glasgow via the Cape with troops for the Middle East"
This sailing was with Convoy WS 9b. You could try Convoyweb.org.uk to trace subsequent movements.
