Further to the posted letter from Arthur Burland; re Rangitata the convoy was CU-65 not HX 348.
I also was a passenger in the Rangitata-a returning child war evacuee
The burning ship Arthur mentions was result of a ship collision which lit up the night sky. The ships in question were the Nashbulk and the St.Mihiel
Oh yes, I remember Gladys Cooper on that voyage; a voyage that experienced a vicious storm and on April 12/13th-the news of the death of President Roosevelt
Thank you for building such an interesting website-- I visit often.
Thank you for the Rangitata information we will amend the Convoy number from HX-348 to CU- 65.
We do try to be accurate, but do not always succeed.
