Looking at your shipmates information I see there is a ships master of the "Athlone Castle" 1937 by the name of Barron.

This is my family name (Brian Barron). I was informed by my late father that he met a Commodore Barron, whether this was his rank I do not know, on the Capetown Castle when he was being transported to the Far East during the second world war around about 1943.

I am trying to do a family history and if you have any information relating to this, or where I can obtain it, I would be very appreciated

regards


Brian Barron
