My Grandad (96 years old!) has asked me to find out something for him about one of his World War II experiences, and a friend of mine in the Navy suggested this forum might be able to help. On Boxing Day in 1941 he was on a troop transport (possibly a converted civilian vessel) travelling from Liverpool to Douglas (Isle of Man) - he thinks... Something happened - mine, torpedo - he doesn't know. He and his mate managed to escape (he believes a ghostly seaman led them to safety) but he never knew what happened, who of his other mates survived, or anything else about the incident. If anybody can help shed light on this I know that he would be thrilled to find out, or at least if somebody could point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks in advance.
