Are you sure this was November 1941? The information I have would put this sailing on August 15, 1940. I'm doing some research on this one right now - would this be the sailing from Gourock? It matters to me quite a bit that I have the date right, so I'd be very grateful to have any info you can give me. This is for a play I'm putting together for a children's theatre company.

Unless...this isn't a CORB group going over? But surely - were there still trips going over this late in 1941? Were these War Guests?
