    1. Hallo Carole
      Your Dad would have been on an older CEDARBANK that was lost in the war on 21 April 1940. She was in a convoy to Norway when sunk by the U26. There is more information re the tragedy on this site which you can find by searching on the Q symbol for Cedarbank. Regards/Alan Rawlinson
