Capt. Albert Terrance Mastin and MV Devon Coast

May 24, 2010

 Subject: MV Devon Coast

Dear Mac and Terry,

My husband was just doing a little brousing regarding Devon Coast and Bari. I would be very pleased to
exchange any information I can give you with any information that you might be able to give me.

I am the youngest daughter of Capt. Albert Terrance Mastin. My father was a very private man and due to my
age, I was born in 1945, never really spoke about his experiences during the war. I am never the less very
proud of him, and would like any information that you may be able to pass on to me. I can, maybe, help you
with details of his life after the war?

Yours very sincerely
Kathy Gilbert (nee Mastin)
