A little extra
A Cyril Norman appears on the ships manifest aboard the "Fort Thompson"
owners Glen & Co Cardiff, signed on 17th March 1945 in St John, aged 32 with
5years service, he is 6' -1" in height and 185Lbs the ship sailed from Saint
John N.B. arrived New York 23 March 1945
If this is the correct Cyril Norman he signed on as a Deck Hand, which
usually inferred that a Deck Hand was a DEMS Gunner,

He also appears to have been aboard the " Cape Turret" 3rd March 1943 again
as a Deck Hand
