Remembered Today:

S.S. Hemisphere


Recommended Posts

my grandfather was also torpedoed on the ship SS Hemisphere by The Cron Prince Wilhelm

He was taken prisoner in Buenos Aries but released with help of the Red cross, he was released due to his age of 50-56.

Any Information on any of the above would be most gratefull.
