Hello Zeewestie, just had a look at the link you gave Bill for the old Captain Cook,
found to my surprise after seeing the old girl get towed into Wellington on the odd occassion that she was in fact sister ship to the "Athenia". My uncle was a cook on board at the time she was torpedoed and was one of the lucky survivers although badly burned he made it ashore but this was the finish of his seagoing career. I would like to know more about the "Athenia" and wondered if you can help?
