AS AN 8 YEAR OLD BOY IN 1942, I remember a voyage from Rangoon to Madras taken to escape the Japanese. However, I only found out the name of the vessel, when clearing out my mother’s home on her death.
I wonder whether any readers have any information about this vessel, speed, tonnage, etc, that you can give me - a picture would be a bonus. I hope to write a little bit about my wartime memories for my grandchildren.
