Family history relates that the SS Maharaja (mentioned in the June and July 2017 issue’s of Sea Breezes) evacuated women and children from Singapore in early 1942 prior to its fall to the Japanese.
I can find no evidence of this, although she would not have been too far away at the Andaman Islands.
No official log books are held by Cardiff. Where would they be? Also crew lists, passenger lists?
Any information would be appreciated.
