Al Rawdah Prison Ship
« on: January 05, 2019, 01:33:50 PM »
Hi all, I’m new to this forum. My grandfather was interned on the Al Rawdah prison ship on or around 1940. His name was Patrick Joseph Morgan, he was from SeaView Warren Point Co Down. He signed the prisoner autograph book onboard the ship “action, not words” he also spent time in Derry Gaol and Crumlin Gaol. I was wondering if anyone on this forum had any relatives who were also on the Al Rawdah?

Your Grandfather certainly led an interesting life!
There are a few Threads on the Forum with regard to the Al Rawdah.
On the top right hand corner of the page just type in the name and click search.

I'm also new to this forum. Trying to put a picture on but don't know how to do it. My grandfather was also on this ship.Ihave a harp that was made out of wood salvaged from the ship.He wrote on the 2.9.40 in an autographed book. "Ireland u freewill never be a peace." don't know what date he was then transferred to Crumlin Road jail but I think he was on there for 6 months.and then several years in the Cromlin road.
