Does anyone have any information or have any relatives that were lost with this ship. It was on or about the 10th of october 1941 off the coast of Metaghan Nova Scotia. Master on board was my grandfather James Mann. Ship was S.S Brant O.N 116875.

Any info would help. Seems like this ship never exsisted. i can't find it on any Data bases.

Thanks

Am looking for information similar to that you posted for the tugboat Brant but relative to the tugboat Eureka. Where would I locate it? Your help would be appreciated.
