Contacting SS Athenia survivors?

August 13, 2009


My name is Mark Smith and I'm a writer with The Herald newspaper in Scotland. I am writing a piece about the sinking of the SS Athenia and I have been reading the information on your site with great interest. I am looking for survivors who might be able to speak to me; are you in touch with any? This would be for a piece in The Herald, which is Scotland's largest broadsheet newspaper with a combined online and print readership of 2.3million.
Thankyou very much,

Mark Smith

I really am no longer in touch with any Athenia survivors, they of course are getting less and less as the time goes by.
