Summary - Information about the Iolaire, the Amalthaea and the Berneray men aboard.

At the end of the [Second World] War the [ship named]Iolaire was moved to Dundee. The contributor's brother, Finlay, and some other Berneray men were aboard. The Iolaire log books were transferred to the Amalthaea and the Amalthaea [now renamed Iolaire] replaced her in Stornoway. Everybody thought that the Iolaire that was lost was the vessel on which the Berneray men were sailing, but it wasn't. Information is given about the other Berneray men aboard.
