Hi Cerise, I have, after many months of research discovered from my father's diaries that he was sharing a cabin with your Great Uncle on board the Abosso. There has been so much information to sort through that I did not make the connection until today. My father Sgt WG Bromley wrote that he shared a cabin with Rhodes, Gore and Birtwhistle and that they were in their cabin talking to the steward when the first torpedo struck. My father then goes on to describe the following events until his rescue by HMS Bideford. Very sadly he does not mention your Great Uncle again but I would be very happy to share what he wrote with you.
