Louie--does your book have a reference to a ship that left England on VE day with warbrides, babies & released POW's? The ship was the Hermitage. Dont know port of departure, but believe it arrived in NY. I was a four month old infant on this voyage. Many soldiers and sailors had not seen their families for years, and were helpful in taking me for walks around the decks. Sure would like to meet some of them!!
