I found this webpage about DPs who were staying at Schloss Wilhelmsthal
(2nd link) . .
. . and who had left by rail from Schweinfurt in 1949, to Naples, for Sydney.
On the same page is an expanation of IRO "International Relief
Organization," but I don't know what the "S" stands for.
btw. there is still a US base at Schweinfurt
I don't even know if they were Greek, but could G.C. stand for Greek
Catholic, as opposed to G.O. for Greek Orthodox ?
