SS Titan

Joop Berkhout

Titan: 1

De Nederlandse schepen SS Flora en SS Titan slaagden erin meer dan 400 mannen te redden. Zoals u weet is het me gelukt nakomelingen van de beide kapiteins te vinden. Met hun hulp zijn we nu op zoek naar nakomelingen van de andere bemanningsleden van de Flora en de Titan

De Britse vissersboten Coriander en JGC waren even succesvol. Ook zij slaagden erin meer dan 400 mannen te redden. Tom Phillips was de kapitein van de treiler Coriander en George Jacobs van de JGC, ook uit Lowestoft. Ik zou het mooi vinden als lezers me zouden helpen om ook nakomelingen van de bemanningen van deze schepen te vinden.
