Russian Far Eastern Shipping Company

I understand that several histories of this company (FESCO) have been published in Russian. I am hopeful that some one can provide me with the bibliographic data, and perhaps the name of a book dealer. Many thanks in advance. As always my interest is on contacts with China.

Good morning Jerry
I suggest you put this query on the Ship Forum. There are several Russian contributors there who may be able to help you.

Good hunting

Looking for any pictures / posters of the SS Lochgarry she was lost with 20+ fatalities including my Grandfather (William Park Adams ).
These seamen have been forgotten by both their Government and the company that they where employed with, namely David Mac Braynes .
Mac Braynes Managing Director doesn't feel he needs to reply to any correspondence when asked what he will do to comemorate the deaths of these brave men . Men who rescued over 1000 troops from the beaches of Dunkirk .
Came under enemy attack at least three times doing the run that they where given Glasgow , Iceland , the Pharoe islands running troops and munitions . No North Atlantic Medals for the men with no voices.

You have got your underwear in a knot.

There are no records of a Lochgarry lost or damaged in WW2.

A William Adams is recorded as lost on the SS Melrose of Leith in 1940.

Suggest you check your data/facts.

If you then put any question you may have on the Ship Forum, you may find that one of our helpful contributors may be able to assist you in whatever you are trying to do.

Good hunting

Referring to the two previous posts, there is a report of an Official Inquiry relating to a Lochgarry which ran aground with a number of lives lost.
It was not due to enemy action.
