My father was on the illfated voyage as First Mate , although he said he was Chief Officer. His name was Charles Shand .He wrote a book about it called "Looking Back" whichis in the ACT War Memorial, Australia. I editted the book, and am very familiar with the voyage.
Can I help you in anyway?

I am planning to dive a wreck off Tabarka,Tunisia, this summer and Empire Pelican is a on the list of possible
I am desperately in need of a picture to see if it matches the sonar snapshot I have of this wreck.
I would of course report on the outcome of the search, later in the season.
With thanks and best regards.
