Am wondering what flag the ship you refer to sailed under as a cargo ship named Celebes, 453 t., owned by Ministry of War Transport and managed by John Kelly was lost on passage from Birkenhead to Falmouth in March 1941. My source -
Btitain's Sea War, A Diary of Ship Losses 1939-1945.

Regards,

Bill
