Can someone clarify 26th TNG is this the 26th Yankee Div made up of New England Guard Units??????
Little and scattered info on the SS Milford Victory (7,710 tons).I did find the following reference that says she was sold to the Netherlands Line in 1946
ex-Milford Victory, 1946 purchased from U.S, renamed Abbedijk, 1954 renamed Abbedyk, 1961 sold to Persian Shipping Services, London renamed John L. Manta.
Go to this website for research ideas on US troop ships
A book/index of WWII troop ships
Troopships of World War II by Roland W. Charles; published and distributed by The Army Transportation Society; Washington, D.C.; April 1947
Hopefully more to follow
