(Ship) Travelfr 12 Feb 1942 - 23 Feb 1942Leslie Denis (Denis) Emerson-Elliott, Nona/Norma Brayer; SS Empire Star, Blue Star Line, Singapore/Batavia/Fremantle, SINGAPORE/INONESIA/AUSTRALIA; >
Parents and 2 children in First Class.
MV Empire Star left Singapore before dawn on 12 Feb 1942 in the last convoy to depart before the fall of Singapore to the Japanese Army 3 days later.
Passenger List on arrival at at Fremantle 23 Feb 1942 shows: Passengers = ELLIOTT-EMERSON [sic], Leslie Denis, Norma Felece [sic], Anthony Denis, Derek St John; Port of Embarkation = Singapore; Profession, Occupation or Calling = Lt RNVR, Home-Duties, Infant, Infant; Age = 33 [actually 36], 23, 4, 2; Country of Last Permanent Residence = Singapore; Nationality = British; Race (specifying Country) = British; Country of Intended Future Permanent Residence = Australia; Address in Australia = c/o S.N.O., Sydney, NSW.
On this voyage, Master = Selwyn N. Capon, Total Passengers = 33, being 30 adults [8M, 22F) and 3 children [2M, 1F]. No Births or Deaths on the voyage.
However, from contemporary accounts, there were at least 2,000 people on board, some 15 people died when the ship was attacked by Japanese planes and some people disembarked at Batavia -- it is not known why only 33 names were on the Passenger List at Fremantle, or why that List contains no reference to those who died.
MV Empire Star (12,656 tons gross), owned by the Union Cold Storage Company, was the second of 3 ships of that name. Built in Belfast in 1935, she was torpedoed and sunk off the Azores later in 1942 with the loss of 42 lives.
MEMORIES OF A CHILD PASSENGER Submitted by Derek Emerson-Elliott
I was aboard the Empire Star when she left Singapore just before the surrender. I was two-and-a-half at the time, but have three, possibly four memories of the voyage. The probable memory is of seeing an ack ack gun firing, and then going into a sandbagged shelter with my mother and brother, and sitting on the floor listening to the sound of diving aircraft. I remember all the women in the shelter were fanning themselves with Chinese paper fans. They all looked frightened except my mother, who smiled at me. I was told that this happened on No. 4 wharf just before we boarded the vessel, but otherwise cannot connect it with the Empire Star.
I am certain that the other three memories are of the Empire Star. One is of my brother Tony and I sitting on the floor with other children in a darkened cabin. There was a lady (not my mother) lying on a bed looking at me. The occasion was the giving of Christmas presents to children on the ship, and someone (I understood it to be the Captain) opened a sack and handed out little presents. The only present I recall was a comb that I was very proud of. My understanding is that the Empire Star had brought Christmas toys to Singapore in its cargo but had not unloaded them in Singapore, and that the Captain had decided to give some of them to the children on board. My next memory was of looking over the rail and seeing the ship towing a large flat raft. This may have been in Batavia harbour during repairs, but at the time I thought we were under way.
The last memory is of my mother, father (who was a lieutenant in the RNVR seconded to the ship as an 'additional officer'), Tony and I going to dinner and finding the dining room absolutely packed out, with tables and chairs full of people in the lobby outside the dining room.
My mother, Tony and I had been put on Empire Star by Bishop Wilson, the Bishop of Singapore. Father - who had been a rubber planter and then businessman in Malaya before the war - had been the First Lieutenant of a minesweeper which was sunk, and had been given orders to join Empire Star by his CO, Captain Mulock, RN, Head of Extended Defences. Father was in Naval Intelligence, ending the war as Personal Assistant and Chief of Staff to the Australian Director of Naval Intelligence, Commander RBM Long.
We remained with Empire Star until disembarking in Fremantle on 23 February 1942.1,2,3

Mantua (Ship)

?, ID3354
Last Edited22 Jan 2020
Notefr 1909 - 1935     SS Mantua was 10,946 gross tonnage, length 562 ft, beam 61.2 ft, with 2 funnels, 2 masts, twin screw, and speed 16 knots. She was the first of 2 ships of that name. Launched as a commercial merchant liner on 10 Feb 1909 by Caird & Co., Greenock, for Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co., she started her maiden voyage to Australia on 4 Jun 1909. Between 1913 and 1914, she was used as a cruise ship.
     In Aug 1914, she was commissioned into the Royal Navy, fitted as an armed merchant cruiser and attached to the 10th Cruiser Squadron tasked with patrolling the waters between Britain and Iceland. During one of her patrols in the North Sea, the ship reportedly hit a submerged object, an occurrence that has led to some sources suspecting that Mantua caused the loss of the German merchant submarine Bremen, an event for which Mantua did not take credit. From 1915 she was used as a troopship.
     In 1918, Mantua sailed to Freetown, Sierra Leone, arriving on 15 August. As some of her passengers and crew were ill with influenza, HMS Mantua is considered one of the first ships to have spread the ongoing pandemic to the African continent.
     In 1920, she was refitted by Vickers Armstrong and returned to the civilian Australia service with a call at Bombay.
     In July1935, she was sold for scrapping at Shanghai.1,2

On this voyage, the ship sailed from London (Gravesend), called at ports as shown above and, after Singapore, continued to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kobe and Yokohama; Master = AH Hignett; Total passengers = 261, being 226 adults (30 couples, 98M, 68F), 32 children 1-12 (16M, 16F) and 3 infants (1M, 2F).3,4,5
