Hallo Billy !

Ich bin ja normalerweise bei Verlusten des 1. Weltkrieges nicht so gut und habe fr 1918
alles zu ELOBY ohne Erfolg abgesucht.
Aber am 19.Juli 1917 wurde der britische Dampfer ELOBY 6545 BRT 1913 erbaut
durch U 38 mit Torpedo 75 sm sdstlich Malta versenkt.

Viele Gre
Theo

Billy, Theodor basically says that this ship (6545 gt, built 1913) was torpedoed by U-38 on July 19-1917, 75 miles(?) southeast of Malta. He can't find anything on her for 1918.

Theodor's postings are always very valuable, but not everyone reads German. I would love to get some volunteers who could translate his posts, or at least summarize what's in them so that everyone can benefit from them - do I have any takers? (I really don't have the time to do it myself, besides I don't understand absolutely everything and might end up giving the wrong translation).

Eloby (British & African Steam Nav. & Co.), by the way was built by Irvine's Shipbuilding. The captain and 55 of her crew died.
