    This info is about my father. I question the return ship the H.M.T. Carona (I think it should read Corona) as it was sunk in 1916… will keep digging and will advise you of my findings… everything else seems to be right on…

    I went back to his WW1 file and I made a typo mistake, the name of the ship is Caronia, not Carona. Thanks for telling me. Can you tell me where he is buried? I like to take a photo of the gravestone and add to the biography when it is possible
