Information: By kind permission of Mr Billy McGee from his book "They Shall Grow Not Old"

Cargo ship Castlemoor, 6,574grt (Runciman Shipping Co.) had loaded a cargo of steel ingots in Philadelphia as well as 2,403 barrels of apples for Middlesbrough and sailed to Halifax, Nova Scotia where she joined up with the Liverpool bound 55 ship Convoy HX-20 which left Halifax on the 16th February 1940.

The ship was sighted by the SS Dalemoor on the 23rd February in position 46’ 14N 36’ 04W and again by the SS Royal on the 25th. Nothing more was ever of the ship and her forty man crew.

The ship was officially reported missing/untraced April 17th and a Joint Arbitration and Missing Ship Committee considered her lost 25th February wholly from “Marine Peril”. No U-Boat ever claimed to have sunk this vessel. However the ship’s loss must have happened very quickly as no distress signal was ever transmitted
