Sadly there were many troopships lost to enemy action https://uboat.net/allies/merchants/2528.html
but there may well be clues in his records when you get them.

Medpat, thanks for the link on the Vesuvius eruption. If you click on the highlighted text (in pink) beneath the photo there is actual film. It's absolutely amazing photography by the Americans. I wonder what FIL was doing on that day?

Max, thanks for your comments and link. I'm now geared up to try and obtain his service records. However I now understand his daughter obtained some service records whilst he was still alive but they were only the very basic ones.
