    Default Looking for first names

    Could someone who is familiar with ship passenger manifests please look up first names for the two Sgts in the following list:

    F/Lt Walter E Edser, F/Sgt Eric Stone, F/O William E Nicholas, DFC, P/O Christopher E Lewis, and Sgts Hall and House.

    They sailed to the US on the SS Strategist mid-to-late February 1942.

    Thanks in advance:

    Robert

    Hello Robert,

    Have located a Nominal Roll of personnel embarked per SS “Strategist” - 25 February 1942, which is stamped RAF Embarkation Office 27 Feb 1942 Liverpool & District.
    Hall is shown as N D Hall and House is shown with no initials.
    There are other names than those listed on your thread.

    However there is a border crossing for them from Canada to US which does show names.
    Hall (wrongly shown as Ball) is Norman Douglas and House is Alfred George.

    Additionally for your records Edser is Walter Edwin, Nicholas is William Edward and Lewis is Christopher Edward.

    Regards
    Martyn

    Hi Martyn:

    Great detective work! Many thanks.

    Is this something I could have found online myself or would I need to be a member of something?

    Cheers:

    Robert
