John Desmond Kelley


E-mail 17th May 2009

Do you have any mention of my brother, John Desmond Kelly?    

He was on Rowallan Castle when she left he Clyde in Sept 1941 and was on board when she had to be sunk by  destroyer HMS Liveley.   After repatriation he joined Llangibby Castle and took US troops in the North Africa landing.        

After the new Rowallan Castle was completed in April 1943, my brother joined her and did several trips to north-west USA and Brazil for meat cargoes.    Any more details much appreciated, thanks.
