I have just read Mr Hodges comments on the sinking of the Effna. I also lost an Uncle who I believe was on this vessel. I am currently trying to find out more, can you help? My Uncles name was Harry Sinclair I understand that he was mate on board the Effna.
I would be very greatfully for any help you could give on this. All that I know so far is that ..
At 2332,the unescorted SS Effna was torpedoed & sunk by U-108 SE of Iceland. The master and 32 crewmembers were lost, commanding the U-boat was Kptlt. Klaus Scholtz
