    My father in law was in a lifeboat for about the same time. He died in the 1950s.

    I have established that my father was on the Avila star when it sailed from Liverpool on 20th April 1942. He obviously survived, but I can find no account of him in the one crew list I fave found. Does anyone know where else I can search?
