Hi All, I'm looking into my fathers sea going career 1938--1952, he sailed on the Heyser as 3rd Engineer, picking the vessel up in North Shields on the 13-2-45 and being discharged in Port Sweeterham Malaysia on the 29-4-46.I'm after help in finding out how he arrived back home and where the vessel sailed to between North Shields and Port Sweeterham Your's Peter Scanlan.
