Joseph and Elnetta Macdonald survive sinking of Athenia?
I have been advised, as a result of research carried out about a relative who was a WW1 casualty, that his brother and wife survived the sinking of the Athenia.
They were Joseph and Elnetta Macdonald. Do you have any record of these two on any of the survivors lists?
I am afraid I have no record of the two survivors from Athenia that you mention.
I have very little record of those survivors who were rescued by the three British destroyers and landed at Greenock Scotland.
Those lists have always eluded me, and I still cannot track them down.

I managed to obtain further information about these two passengers, after quizzing my mother about it! (Joseph was her Uncle) This is what she remembers:
My thanks for your extra information.
I can imagine any survivors being anxious about crossing the Alantic again.
