Colonel John Lionell Miller-Hallett, survivor of SS Persia sinking 1915
I am trying to trace descendants of Colonel John Lionel (Lion) Miller-Hallett who lived formerly at Phoenix Cottage, Shirley Holms, Lymington, Hampshire, England, Colonel of the Gurkha Rifles. In December 1915 he was a 2nd Lieutenant travelling aboard SS Persia when she was sunk off Crete by U38. I am researching the Persia story and the stories of passengers and crew for eventual publication. His daughter, Gillian Frances Miller-Hallett, married John Alfred James Bibby and they had four children - Elizabeth, Susan, Caroline and Peter. I would be grateful to hear from them if they would be willing to share their Grandfather's experiences from SS Persia.
