    The Coultarn was sunk in 1941.

    Cargo ship Coultarn, 3,759grt, (Dornoch Shipping Co.) sailed in ballast from Hull and joined up with the coastal Convoy FN-439 bound Methil and then sailed on to Loch Ewe in Convoy EN-90/1. Departing Loch Ewe on the 26th March 1941bound for Mobile Alabama, Coultarn joined up with the 32 ship Convoy OB-302, which had departed Liverpool two days earlier and dispersed on the 29th March. The following day the Coultarn now sailing independently was sighted by U-69, about 312 nautical miles South-West of Iceland and struck by torpedo in the engine room killing three men on duty and disabling her engines. Developing a list the ship was ordered abandoned in the only surviving lifeboat just as a second torpedo detonated in the stoke hold. The ships Radio Officer who had been attempting to send a distress message was blown overboard into the sea, but was fortunate to be picked up by the lifeboat having spotted the red light on his lifejacket. With only the Master left onboard the ship began her final descent as the Master struggled to cut free a life raft, but as the ship sank beneath him in position 60’ 18N 29’ 28W, the raft floated free with him clinging to it and he was picked up by the lifeboat ten minutes later The thirty-nine survivors were found thirty six hours later by the Armed Merchant Cruiser California.

    There is no Nasha Abraham recorded with the CWGC as being killed during WWII. Have also checked the 1939-1945 Deaths at Sea Register for those Merchant Seamen lost through accident, injuries, illness, etc and again no listing for him.

    Thanks Billy, just food for thought, could
    any record be misspelt etc:

    EG: N. Abraham, Nashir Abraham etc ?
