    Wow!
    Massive thanks to all for generously sharing your knowledge and expertise. You have certainly given me a brilliant start to researching my Grandad's career. Quite thought provoking to see the number of vessels torpedoed (I hope he wasn't on all of them: he'd have been marooned on an island somewhere I expect!).
    But seriously, I'm going to go away now and have a look in the central library (Liverpool) to see if there are any pictures or anecdotes from the period. Sorry about his date of birth: it was 24.11.1894 in Liverpool. I hope you won't mind if I get back to you when I've done a bit more research as I'm sure I will have further questions. In the meantime thanks again. Best wishes,
    Dominic

    Think I have found the elusive shipname.140665 might be 142665 in which case she will be ss BERNINI 1919-1933.Sold out of fleet in 1933.

    Best Regards
