Either Hazel or May Toon survived the sinking of Ahenia

November 7, 2011

I just found your website about the sinking of the Athenia in 1939. I believe one of my great aunts, either Hazel or May Toon survived the sinking 

Both lived at Cape Cod, Mass. One sister was on another transport, but I think the aunt who survived was hospitalised in Scotland.

Both sisters survived a later disaster when a ferry they were on sank in Boston Harbour.

Hope this is useful.

Kate Hume,

Thank you for that, we will add your great aunt to our Athenia Pages.

Best regards,
