If anybody is doing a survey in the above cemetery I would be most grateful for a photograph of the grave of SISTER CHRISTINA JACK, Q.A.I.M.N.S. grave number - H222.

Will forward my email by PM if you can oblige

Tony

From http://www.warsailors.com/singleships/freidig.html

20 men died when Freidig sank on Febr. 7-1944 after her cargo had shifted in a storm with heavy seas while on a voyage from Aberdeen to Liverpool with a cargo of 1624 tons rye.........
Thurso Lifeboat found 5 dead men on a raft and recovered them, 2 were rescued from a second raft, but there was no trace of any others........

There's a Mess Room Boy Patrick Mervyn Nutt listed as having died on the date Freidig went down on the Commonwealth War Graves Comm. website. No ship is mentioned, but Billy Mc.Gee, England has been able to confirm that this was Freidig's messboy. He was born on Aug. 7-1927, which made him 16 when lost, not 17 as stated. He may have been 1 of the bodies recovered by the Thurso lifeboat, because he's buried at Thurso Cemetery.
