My Grandfather was Captain of the Anadara and attended the Coronation Naval Review 1937 with his ship. He later became involved in having the New York lights blacked out to save vessels coming into port from being silhouetted against the skyline and easy targets for U Boats. If anyone knows anything more about my Grandfather Captian John George Hawker Tucker I would be interesed to hear from them.
