Grandfather was lost at sea from Empire Whale in 1943, sunk by U-662
Dear Mr Gregory,
I hope you dont mind me emailing you, but i am trying to find info of a ship called the Empire Whale, this ship was sunk by U-662 in 1943, would you have any info of this event happening, I do now have a picture of the Empire Whale has took me 4 yrs to track down,
Any info or pictures i would be very grateful of the U-662.
I do not mind at all about you E-Mailing me, and I am pleased to help if possible.
Here are some details:
I will separately mail you a photo of Empire Whale and details of U-662, but no photo of the U-Boat was I able to find.
Hope this helps you.
Thank you for getting back in touch with me so quickly, The reason I am interested in the Whale is my grandfahter was lost at sea from her in 1943, and to find info of the Empire Whale and the U-662 concerning their past history together, it just gives me some insight of the history of it, once again thank you for getting back in touch with me.
I was looking at your site and thought you might like the address of a site that i was looking at.
It is www.newportsdead.bravehost.com i noticed a couple of entries from the ss empire whale and thought that you might be interested one being the name J Doyle. I was only looking because it is a new site and i remember my old mum saying about Jim Doyle who died in Empire whale.
I hope you find it interesting, and perhaps you could let me know.
all the best
