The S.S. Adjutant was converted into ammunition supply ship and sailed under 124x articles with the Blue Ensign to North Africa Via Gibraltar, Algiers, Bougie, Tunis, and Malta. After the invasion of Sicily and Southern Italy, she discharged her cargo at Ismailia, and Haifa, before returning home. Her Master was Capt. W. D. Smith, who was awarded an M.B.E. I left the Adjutant on her return, but cannot confirm that she was also involved in the invasion of Europe. I hope this may be of interest.
