Roebuck to Rosewood

This page has been updated to include basic information about those that lost their lives. The data is by courtesy of the CWGC and I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as well as those lost at sea and recorded on the Tower Hill memorial. In most cases further family information about the individuals is available on the CWGC website - External Ref. #7.



Roebuck

She was a 769 grt steam cargo ship that survived the war. According to the CWGC database, the Date of Death of Mr Wills, who was an Able Seaman, was 13 June 1940. Please see the entry for him on the Queries and Omissions page under 'Omissions'.

Rohna

She was a 8,602 grt steam Passenger/ cargo ship that was being used as a troopship when sunk on 26 November 1943 by a Henschel Hs293 radio-controlled glider bomb controlled by a Heinkel 177 bomber. She was sunk at position 36° 56’ N, 05° 20’ E. Of the total loss of life amounting to 1,138 souls, 1,015 were American - the biggest loss of US troops at sea in a single incident in the war. News of the loss was suppressed at the time and only emerged gradually - the first mention of the cause being a glider bomb not being published until 1948. There has been much controversy over the reason for the high number of casualties and anyone interested should use Google to find more information.
