Hello again, Maria Grimes. Just a note to acknowledge my receipt of your post. Your G/F led an interesting, and I imagine, exciting life. Just for academic interest, I checked my lists of Troop Ships , and found no listing for the LANCASTRIA, but that in itself is not surprising, for the listing has historically been handled by one person, and is an enormous task at best. My own ships are not listed (USS GENERAL RICHARDSON, Hampton Roads 14 Jan 45 to Naples Italy, and USS MARINE CARP, 19 Feb 46, Naples to NY P/E) Bored ? No, never ! Like you, I find these accounts stimulating as well as informative. With best regards to you and to your family, Louie.
