Think my granddad sailed the boat which saved survivors of the Athenia

Hello Sir, 

I think I may be able to help you with your research. We think my granddad sailed the boat which saved survivors of the Athenia. We have details on a cigarette packet written by the lady at the time – thanking my granddad for saving the life of her and her son. 

As I am also interested in your research, we can try and find out more information if you require? 

Many Thanks

Dear Christy,
Thank you for your message, I would be delighted to have any new information that you may be able to provide on the tragic sinking of Athenia. In particular, the names af any passengers that you may have, how fascinaing to have some names on a cigarette packet.

Would it please be at all possible to scan that precious cigarette pack and send me a copy.

I look forward to hearing from you when convenient.

Kindest regards, 
Mackenzie Gregory.
