Postscript: Survivors of the sinking of the Andalucia Star

I am grateful to Caroline Brechin for contacting me with news of more survivors of the sinking of the Andalucia Star by a German U-Boat in October 1942.

Caroline says: "My great uncle,Robert Cruickshank, his wife and child, Dolly Baxendale and Jacquelyn Cruickshank,were on board this ship, He had emigrated from Aberdeen Scotland and volunteered in Buenes Aires. All three survived."

My great grandfather Edward Nolan survived the sinking. I've been trying to find more information about the sinking but with no success. He was a fireman on the ship so was very lucky to survive. If anyone has more info please let me know.
