Hi, my wife believes her deceased father was a crew member on board MV Rochester Castle which took part in a heroic convoy to supply Malta during WW2. She wants to find details of the crew who were on board, any ideas of where we could get some imformation. Thanks for looking.

I remember visiting the war museum in Malta and there is a wonderful model display about this convoy as well as lots of information about each ship which was sunk along the way. I don't know if they have a site on the web but you could try there. The amazing thing was that I think I was the only UK person there as the place was full of fascinated Germans. One of the best short breaks I ever had. Wonderful wonderful island.
