My father Desmond Doyle was aboard for the last North Atlantic convoy of the WWII and on her independent return to the UK.

Was R.O. on her last voyage. Signed on in March `58 in Newcastle and signed off in Singapore after running up from Indonesia, where we had a narrow escape from a bombing raid by the rebels. She fractured her prop shaft getting out of there and was subsequently towed to HK for scrapping. A British Tanker ( a couple of cables length away) was sunk in the same raid.
