Response to Missing voyage MS Boschfontein


Hi Bob,
According to the Ship Movement Cards at the National Archives in College Park, MD, it was the Bloemfontein that left Auckland on October 29, 1942, arrived in San Francisco on November 13th and sailed again on November 21st.

The Boschfontein's movements during this period was: sailed from Auckland November 3rd, arrived in Noumea November 6th; Sailed from Noumea November 14th, arrived in Fila, Efate November 16th; sailed from Fila November 19 with SS Perida escorted by Ellet, arrived in Espiritu Santo November 20th; sailed from Espiritu Santo (?), arrived in San Francisco December 17th; sailed from San Francisco January 9, 1943

Sorry I don't have the date she sailed from Espiritu Santo. I hope this is some help to you.
