Hi Guys, Still researching our War Memorial names and have got a bit stuck with (Marie Joseph Isidore) Maxime Jollivet, born in Mauritius in 1889, made 2nd mate (foreign going ships) in 1915, 1st mate in 1918 and Master in 1920. So I am assuming he saw action in WW1 as well as WW2 when he went down with the SS Empire Lancer after it was torpedoed by U-862. He married a local girl, Winifred Ruth Shields in 1925 and I've been wondering where he was that they managed to meet? Where did his service take him/ (I can't find anything other than his WW2 service on the Lancer), how does someone from Mauritius end up on the British Merchant Navy? What other ships he might have been on? Was it unusual to go from 2nd mate to Master in 5 years? (Or was it necessities of war?). I;ve got a big gap between birth and marriage and then again until he was torpedoed. I;d love to find out more details to tell more of his story. Thanks for any help, info or signposts you can give!
