"Irish Shipping Limited" war-time ships

Post by Waleed Y. Majeed » 07 Jan 2018 13:44

Have just found a familiar name on the internet :thumbsup:
Now I know on what ship my grandad served and got to Ireland on. He's the member mentioned who didn't leave. By this time (1945) he was married, had one daughter (my mom) and one more on the way. http://homepage.eircom.net/~Irishshippi ... 0Cedar.htm

If you're interested in Irish shipping history during WW2 I made a post a while back about the Estonian and Latvian ships that Eire helped prevent from being seized by the Soviets: https://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?t=227825

Thanks! There's pictures and a short bio on the Otto, Mall, and Piret in my second link if interested. Otto - Irish Willow, Mall - Irish Rose, Piret - Irish Alder. For me it was more the surprise and joy of seeing my grandfathers italian ship and his name. He passed away many years ago and no one in the family knew what the name of the ship was and how it actually got to Ireland. Many conflicting stories... ;)
