Good Afternoon. I am humbled by all these stories and the bravery of every soul aboard that ship. My grandfather, Peter Xanthus, was part of the 31st Signal Heavy Construction Bn. who survived the Rohna but has since passed (2008). I never really spoke with him of his experience and I regret that now but I wanted to reach out here to see if anyone has any stories about him. Were you with him in the water or on the ship when it got hit? Or maybe a family member of yours has spoken of him? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and God Bless.
