Can anyone tell me anything about the Arosa Star? I've found another record for my father, Ron Wade, that shows he sailed to Canada on the Arosa Star in 1954. I think he was a passenger, but the record indicates he was a Rigger. The record also says the Arosa Star was from the Arosa Line.

Thanks Castleman. Interesting information. As a matter of fact, it was on Find My Past that I found the record of my dad sailing on the Arosa Star, and only because they offered me some free credits. I do wish those sites weren't so expensive to join!

Many thanks again for your help.
