My dad was a Lieutenant, engineering officer, on board the Saugrain when she was sunk. He attended the Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. He is still alive. After the rescue, he volunteered to serve on the SS William Sharon, another Liberty Ship that had been badly damaged. They cleaned out the dead personnel and got it running again, then sailed it back to the States. I will ask him if he remembers your dad. |
