S.S. Caribou: Passengers & Crew 14/10/1942

Click here for my current list of individuals on board the S.S. Caribou Oct. 14, 1942.

These are the highest quality photos I’ve found on-line of people who were on the S.S. Caribou on the morning of October 14th, 1942, when the ship was torpedoed. Appearing in random order above are: Leonard Shiers, the only surviving baby, in the arms of Petty Officer Ralph Rogers RCN; Nursing Sister Agnes Wilkie RCNVR (wearing glasses); Seaman Eli Maxwell Bishop RN (blond); Nursing Sister Margaret Brooke RCN; Able Bodied Seaman Wilfred George Poole RN (arms crossed): Seaman Francis Warren RN (seated) with friend Kenneth Gosse, who was not on board; Captain Ben Taverner aboard the Caribou in 1941; Seaman Percy Moores RN and his brother Milton, who was not on board, in the Army uniform. Four of these people survived. To learn more click on my current list at the top of this page. Please post a comment if you have more information, corrections, or better photos. I’d love to hear from you.

    Mom and I were on the Carson on the last trip over from Port aux Basque to North Sydney before she was sunk. We were down to Harbour la Que and Dad called to tell us to get home because he heard that there was German submarines out in the Gulf . We were lucky.

    Hi Jenifer, My Great Uncle Eli Max Bishop was highlighted in your article. I am a relative of Eli and it would be great to get in contact with you.
