Athenia Manuscript authored by Judith Evelyn
Judith's Manuscript ( tied up with ribbon ) covered her sailing, being sunk, and rescued from the liner Athenia, in the first casualty of the WW2 U-Boat war in the Atlantic. The ship was sunk by U-30 on Sunday the 3rd.of September 1939 the very first day that WW2 had been declared.
93 passengers and 19 crew members died.
Cynthia had come across our AHOY. Mac's Web Site, seen the number of references to this tragedy on our Athenia Pages, and graciously offered to share
Terry has now put this Athenia Manuscript up on AHOY, so that hopefully many of our visitors may read, and enjoy this unique record of an event that happened now 67 years ago.
Cynthia, we wish to record our grateful thanks for your kindness, and the trouble you have been to, so that we may all share Judith Evelyn's work.
