Frederick William Schoch 1913 - 1966
« on: Tuesday 24 January 17 15:43 GMT (UK) »
Hope someone can advise me here.

My father was in the British Merchant Marine Service during WW11.
I have tracked him on a ship called the MV Neocardia who I discovered sailed from Australia to the Suez Canal sometime in 1943/44.
I am trying to firm this up by looking at what convoys left during that time.  Is there a web site that can assist me in this regard?  I have searched the ConvoyWeb site but that only seems to deal with N'Atlantic and Mediterranean convoys.


Thanks

Richard

Thanks Jamjar,

So on the run from Liverpool to NY Jan '44.
Doesn't look like they were Australia then,, strange but my father's sea going log states the ship was down under.
