Dear Mary,

My thanks for your email, Yes please, I would love to contact your aunt and uncle to learn their story about the loss of Athenia.

In 2011, a new Riverside Transport Museum will be opened on the Clyde at Glasgow, and they will feature an Athenia  Gallery there, I am sure that the Gallery Manager would also be delighted to be in touch with your relatives, and with their approval I will pass on their details to the Glasgow Transport Museum.

I must say, I am still suprised at the number of survivors with whom I have been in contact since I wrote that piece on AHOY.

Best regards,
