    His Discharge Number was R72904. His CR1 contains confirmation of his death on Lancastrian Prince in 1943.

    Hi Vernon.
    My information came from the U-Boat Net and B.V.Lost at sea.
    Lancastrian Prince 1,914 tons Built Smiths dock Middlesbrough for Furniss Withy, completed in 1940. All the crew are named in the U-Boat net including Stanley Taylor who is named as the Chief Engineer .
    I have yet to see the U-boat Net get the wrong ships picture.
    Cheers Des

    Yes Des
    I too have the same on my Link in my reply in Post #2 ,and this is what is confusing as the other Pic I found is a different looking Ship but still the Lancastrian Prince . Possibly an earlier one ?? I must look into it

    Solved Des!

    LANCASTRIAN PRINCE (2)/ITALIAN PRINCE (2) was built in 1921 by Furness Shipbuilding Co. at Haverton Hill with a tonnage of 3478grt, a length of 363ft 5in, a beam of 52ft 2in and a service speed of 11 knots. Sister of the Egyptian Prince she entered service in May 1921 as the Lancastrian Prince but was renamed Italian Prince in 1922. On 7th September 1938 all 43 crew were saved by other ships when she caught fire and was abandoned off Cape Finesterre. (Photo: A Duncan)
