I am seeking information concerning Captain William John Gray, born
Islandmagee, 1884, and gained his Ship's Master's Certificate (041193) at
Belfast in 1915.
In 1942 he was awarded the OBE when the ship he commanded, the Empire
Steel, was sunk by U-123 (Reinhard Hardegen).

One of the lost crew was a relative, Jimmy Geater.
