Assistant Engineer Alfred Entwistle
Hello Andrew, there is a listing on your site, those who served and survived, for one Alfred Entwistle who served in the Merchant Navy aboard the SS Mantowac as 3rd Assistant Engineer, I wondered if you had any additional information on his service?
Tracing his life has been extremely difficult as he and his family simply disappeared after the war, eventually we found his mother on a shipping manifest entering the USA in 1920 with Alfred's brother and sister. I have since traced some of his decedents in Baltimore and New Jersey and the search continues.
In the US Alfred's family appear to have been moderately successful whilst his sister and her family is proving much more elusive. Anything you have will be greatly appreciated.
I now know that Alfred Entwistle after
the great war emigrated to the USA and settled there with his mother,
brother James and sister Sarah.
If anyone has further information on this man, please email Andrew Entwistle on - firstname.lastname@example.org
