After serving in the Burma campaign I was sent on leave to the Vice Regal Lodge in India.I Boarded a ferryboat from Ramree Island in Burma at night with other troops.The ferry was full so we had to sleep on deck. This was in April 1945.About 2am this ferry was struck by a much larger Allied ship and sank in minutes. Only those on deck survived 18 in all.We were picked up by small boats at first light and taken to the large ship where we were kept isolated till we reached Calcutta India where military police tok us to our seperate units and I never saw them again nor did I see the names of either ship,If any of those 18 are still alive or if their families have any knowledge please get in touch.
