My grandmother, Ada May Waterman, was aboard Athenia when it was torpedoed in 1939. She survived, spent the night in a lifeboat, saw the submarine which surfaced briefly, and made it back to port aboard a rescue ship.
My question: Why can't I find her name in the survivor's list on Wikipaedia (sp?) which was apparently copied
I do not have a complete list of Athenia survivors on AHOY.
The list of those picked up by British destroyers and taken to Grennock is incomplete.
I have yet to turn up a total list of those survivors.
