I am writing book about my father's World War 2 service and need some information on two of his sea voyages on troopships. 1. His diary has him leaving Glasgow on 11/06/44 for Bombay on the troopship "Alcantara" as part of Convoy KMF32. I have only found two other ships, SS Maloja and HMS Nairana in that convoy. Would someone please help me with the balance of the names of the other ships (troopships & escorts). I note that there was another Convoy OS80 that left Liverpool that same day, that could have linked up with KMF32 i.e. Gibraltar? My father makes a note in his diary that some ships left the convoy at Gibraltar and others joined up and they went on together. 2. My father did not remember the name of the troopship that brought him back from India to the UK, but he did remember that they went through the Suez Canal and went ashore at Port Said. His records show him leaving Worli (Bombay) on the 17/05/45 and I have found a ship, the "Capetown Castle" that leaves Bombay on 18/05/45. The voyage back to the UK matches my father's, but is there information on what troopships left Bombay from 17th to 18th May 1945, bound for the UK? The "Capetown Castle" joins Convoy MKF45 at Gibraltar and berths in Southhampton on 8/06/45, with the rest of the convoy going onto to Liverpool. My father's service records have him arriving at RAF West Kirby on 12/06/45, so there is a 'gap' between arrival at Southampton and RAF West Kirby. This could be explained (accuracy of service records, ship arriving at night, delays in transport etc.) but it does raise some doubt about if my father was on the "Capetown Castle" or another troopship that left Bombay at the same time in May 1945? Any assistance would be appreciated.
