Notes

Son of Stephen and Sarah Perlman; husband of Ena Margaret Perlman, of Chippenham, Wiltshire. M.B. Ch.B.

This whaling tanker was named after Sven Foyn (1809-1894) the Norwegian sea captain who is viewed as the "father" of modern whaling. In the mid 19th century he was the first to use steam powered vessels as whale catchers, this enabled him to mount the powered harpoon on the bow of his ships. Whaling ceased during W.W.II and this vessel was assigned to convoy duties. She was sunk in the Atlantic in March 1943, not by a U-boat, but after hitting an iceberg whilst en route from New York to Liverpool.
