Thanks for clarifying that, Aris.
I found your article very interesting, and with some useful material on some of the other ships involved.

Re: Greek STYLIANOS 1941

Silly me. Wrong war. I meant the WW2 Lloyd's books, and whether they mention STYLIANOS.

Starke-Schell doesn't mention the cause - Miramar has "ac/b" = "bombed by aircraft".

Re: Greek STYLIANOS 1941

Thanks Andrzej

That is helpful, but raises the question of where the Miramar data originated - perhaps Lloyd's war losses : the First World War : casualties to shipping through enemy causes, 1914-1918? Anyone have this?

Re: Yugoslav SPASILAC

Thanks all - and for the Paluba website link - and it is all coming together now. Question: Are you sure about a Hamburg build? Howaldtswerke did not have a shipyard there until they took over the Deschimag ex-Vulkan yard in 1930, but SPASILAC was launched in 1929 (date?) and completed 4/1930. Or wa...
