I know this is a little late coming but I have not had this information for very long. This I know Re: Bloemfonein in 1941. The ship departed San Francisco on July 22, 1941 and i know that there were 20 to 25 young men who had volunteered to go to China on board. It was believed that eight were pilots and the rest were either radiomen or mechanics. The ship landed in Honolulu on July 28, 1941 and departed that same day for Manila and it arrived in Manila on Aug. 19, 1941.
I am writing a book about one of the passengers aboard the Bloemfonein on that voyage so i can't share my information beyond what i have here. I will keep you in mind if and when i get a publisher. At that time you can have it all.
