Poignant letter written by Myrtle Dempster, sister of 22 year old Alan Keith Jackman Dempster, who was sadly lost in the troopship Khedive Ismail:

'The book Passage to Destiny is very interesting, although sad to read. I was amazed at my ignorance of such battles and how all this was kept secret from the public at that time. I wonder what else they have hidden from us. I feel more relieved knowing more about my young brother's death, the uncertainty of past years has always bothered me.'

The Sinking of the SS Khedive Ismail in the Sea War against Japan

This book tells the full story of the loss of the troopship SS Khedive Ismail in convoy KR8 in February 1944.
    No fewer than 1,296 people lost their lives in the space of the 100 seconds it took to sink the ship, including 77 women (the single worst loss of female personnel in the history of the British Commonwealth). Carrying 1,511 personnel from the Army and the Royal and Merchant Navies, the SS Khedive Ismail sank on Saturday 12 February 1944 when torpedoed by the Japanese submarine I 27 in the Indian Ocean. Only 209 men and 6 women survived the ordeal.
    The submarine was eventually depth charged to the surface by the destroyers Paladin and Petard, and the book includes an account of their difficult but successful attempt to sink her, a campaign which forced the Navy to attack through some of the survivors.
The sinking of the SS Khedive Ismail was the third worst Allied mercantile shipping disaster of the Second World War.
    This book includes many appendices, including the names of the entire ship's complement and includes over 140 illustrations.
    This is an excellent account about a 'forgotten ship' and I would very highly recommend this book to all our readers.

by Richard Skuse

This review is of the book: 'Passage to Destiny' The Sinking of the Troopship Khedive Ismail in the Sea War Against Japan (Hardcover).

If you are interested in historical naval history then this is a must buy book.
The book tells the story of the troopship Khedive Ismail in a convoy torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in World War Two and, as the author states, carrying 1,511 personnel; only 209 men and 6 women survived the ordeal which became the single worst loss of female service personnel in the history of the British Commonwealth.
It is packed with interesting detail and eyewitness accounts and also includes over 140 illustrations, with line drawings hand produced by the author.
This book can be used as an historically accurate reference book, but also is easy to read with many human stories and even in the mist of tragedy some humorous incidences.
This book goes all the way to honour all those who lost their lives and the few survivors who were on this ill-fated ship.

The Sinking of the SS Khedive Ismail in the Sea War against Japan

by Brian James Crabb

The SS Khedive Ismail, a troopship in convoy KR8 was torpedoed by the Japanese submarine I 27 on Saturday 12 February 1944 in the Indian Ocean. She sank in less than two minutes with the loss of 1,296 lives. This was a major disaster, the third worst Allied mercantile shipping disaster of the Second World War. Many of the Admiralty papers regarding this tragedy were not released until forty years later. There were many serious issues raised - the inadequacy of the convoy escort, the failure to zigzag, the failure to provide air cover and post the sinking, the decision by two escort destroyers to attack the submarine through some of the survivors in the water. The author, whose father survived the sinking, draws a compelling read based on records, the accounts of survivors and eyewitnesses on other ships. The book includes many appendices, including the names of the entire ship's complement and over 140 illustrations.
    I knew nothing about this dreadful tragedy. This revised and updated edition is a credit to the author telling the real story of the loss of the SS Khedive Ismail, a story which at the time many wanted to keep suppressed.
Hardback: £26.80 including postage and packing (UK) + £12 Rest of the World

Another recent book review on the Amazon website with the credit of 5 Stars, no less, was reviewed by Janet Whiteman on 8 October 2015. She was married to the late son of the late Captain Roderick William Macaulay Whiteman, master of the ill fated SS Khedive Ismail.

My late husband Roderick William MacAulay Whiteman (son of the late Captain Roderick W. M. Whiteman) would have been so pleased to read both editions of the book entitled Passage to Destiny. He did try to find information about his late father's naval career during WW1 & WW2, but to no avail. It was just the stories his late mother told of their stay in Alexandria and also of her experience returning to the UK with their two young children.
Passage to Destiny - is a wonderful book.

Sometimes a short message touches the heart. this one, for me, did just that. BJC:

Dear Brian
    I have to confess to having read your book Passage to Destiny in one sitting!
    Be in no doubt that your father would have been so proud of your achievement.

Many thanks

Email received 9 September 2015

Dear Brian

I have received the books, thank you very much. I would
like to add I am most impressed with them, I really wasn't
expecting such a professionally finished item.
Once again thank you for all your hard work in researching
and producing the book which has given us valuable insight
into a part of our grandfather's we didn't know about.
I haven't given my mother in law her copy yet as she is on
holiday but I'm sure she will be as overwhelmed as we are.

Congratulations on such a wonderful piece of work.
Best wishes

     I safely received the copies of Passage to Destiny thank you very much.
     What a staggering amount of detail is included, the ship's life and sadly its end. Great credit is due to you. Your father must have had a very frightening and difficult time, as did so many.
     I am pleased with the fantastic presentation of the book, it will eventually be passed down to nephews and their families; we are a close family
     I greatly express my sincere thanks to you for the information I now have.
Kind regards
Very Best Wishes

This is a very moving and extremely well-researched account of one of the most tragic incidents of loss of life to occur in British maritime history. It does great honour to all those who died. and to those who survived this terrible disaster. The author has gone to great lengths to supply exact technical and historical details. What I found most moving of all was the complete list of the names of every person male and female, military and civilian, survivor and victim, involved in this tragedy.

This is a revised and expanded edition of Brian Crabb's book, originally published in 1997. Such was the success and interest generated by that book, many people contacted Brian with new information. All this has been incorporated into the new book together with many new photographs. A new layout has also enabled the artwork to be better presented.
      This excellent book is the result of meticulous research and epitomizes the attention to detail that the author brings to all his books. At the same time, it does not shy away from the human aspects of a disaster that resulted in the loss of so many lives and the dilemmas faced by the people involved, notably those in positions of command. It is written in an easy, approachable style and maintains the reader's interest equally whilst explaining technical details of the ship's construction, as well as recounting the fascinating recollections of eye witnesses.

This compelling read draws on many eyewitness accounts and previously unpublished Admiralty papers, many of which were not released for forty years because of their sensitivity, for the sinking of the Khedive Ismail was the third worst Allied maritime shipping disaster of the Second World War. The book includes many appendices, including the names of the entire ship's complement and includes over 140 illustrations. The painting on the front cover is by maritime artist Robert Blackwell. This is the revised second edition of the book. The first appeared in 1997, but has long been out of print. This new edition includes a great many more photographs and many more eye-witness accounts, and more appendices, and there is a comprehensive index. The ship was built at Greenock in Scotland and launched in 1922 as the SS Aconcagua (owned by a South American company). She was sold in 1935 to an Egyptian line and renamed in honour of the famous nineteenth-century ruler of Egypt. In 1940 she was requisitioned to serve as a troop carrier and took part in many convoys in the Indian Ocean before being sunk in 1944.

Passage to Destiny

The sinking of the SS Khedive Ismail in the sea war against Japan

by Brian James Crabb

This book tells the untold story of the loss of the troopship SS Khedive Ismail in Convoy KR8 in February, 1944. No less than 1,296 people lost their lives in the space of the two minutes it took to sink the ship, including seventy-seven women (the single worst loss of female service personnel in the history of the British Commonwealth). Carrying 1,511 personnel from the Army and the Royal and Merchant Navies, the Khedive Ismail sank on Saturday 12 February 1944, torpedoed by Japanese submarine I-27 in the Indian Ocean. Only 209 men and 6 women survived the ordeal.

The submarine was depth charged to the surface by the destroyers Paladin and Petard, and the book includes an account of their difficult but successful attempt to sink her, a campaign which forced the Navy to depth charge the submarine through some of the survivors.

This compelling read draws on many eye-witness accounts and previously unpublished Admiralty papers, many of which were not released for forty years because of their sensitivity, for the sinking of the Khedive Ismail was Britain's third worst Allied mercantile shipping disaster of the Second World War.

The book includes several appendices, including the names of the entire ship's complement, and includes a generous fifty-three illustrations.

Passage to Destiny

Forgotten story of a doomed ship

It was one of the most dramatic naval encounters of the last war – and yet the the loss of the troopship SS Khedive Ismail has been largely forgotten by everyone outside an ever decreasing circle of survivors and their relatives. Local author Brian Crabb tells the fascinating and genuinely moving story in Passage to Destiny (Paul Watkins Publishing, £14.95p). Brian, who lives in Portishead and runs a garage business in Clifton, has strong personal reasons for retelling the story. His father Percival Crabb (Buster to his shipmates) was one of the few survivors to escape as the torpedoed troopship took just two minutes to slide beneath the Indian Ocean back in February 1944.
    The former liner had left the African port of Kilindini as part of convoy KR8 crowded with black soldiers from the 301st Field Artillery Regiment bound for Burma, along with a strong contingent of female auxiliaries and nursing staff. But an attacking Japanese submarine succeeded in putting two torpedoes in her engine room, blowing up her boilers and sentencing the majority of the trapped African troops and nursing staff to a watery grave. No less than 1,296 of them lost their lives.
    Brian's father, who later worked at Fisons in Avonmouth, was one of the lucky survivors - hauling himself out of a porthole precious seconds before the ship went down. Another survivor, Bill Howard, had almost given up hope of rescuing a trapped Wren when escaping air literally blew the pair of them to the surface.
    But the swimmers problems were not over yet. British destroyers raced in to attack the Japanese sub, dropping depth charges through the survivors. Laconic naval reports admitted this may have added to the casualty list but certainly kept the sharks at bay. The incident was later used by writer Nicholas Monserrat in his novel The Cruel Sea.
    The Japanese sub was forced to the surface and eventually blown in two, its crew following the Khedive Ismail to the bottom. This is a truly compelling story, told simply and without frills by the people involved and it is also lavishly illustrated.

Passage to Destiny

Book Review by Captain Spencer Drummond RN
Published in: The Naval Review Vol. 86 No.1 January 1998

In February 1944, this small troopship [Khedive Ismail] was torpedoed near Addu Atoll whilst in convoy from Mombasa to Colombo. She sank in under two minutes and only 215 survived of 1,511 on board. One survivor was Chief Petty Officer Stoker Percival Crabb RN whose son, Brian, has recently interviewed a number of survivors and made an exhaustive search through old records to produce an excellent account of events leading up to the attack; the subsequent A/S hunt; the Board of Inquiry and the reactions of C-in-C Eastern Fleet (Admiral Somerville) and the Admiralty. There are many quotations and reports made at the time and, more poignant, survivors' accounts on how they managed to escape from the capsizing ship and the horror of being depth charged in the water. More amusing was the reaction of a gunner (T) when one after another of his precious torpedoes failed to hit an almost stationary surfaced submarine!
    The convoy consisted of five small troopships and was carrying some 6,000 personnel, mostly Army. The WWI cruiser Hawkins (not A/S fitted) was the only through escort and Escort Force Commander. Although the convoy speed was well in excess of 11 knots, above which regulations laid down that convoys should zigzag, it was decided not to do so, in part because no submarines were known to be in the area. 12 February dawned fair and calm and destroyers Petard and Paladin joined as A/S escort for the last two days to Colombo. (An intended third destroyer had a defect). They took station one on each bow and zigzagged.
    At 1433 the Khedive Ismail was torpedoed on her starboard side abreast the engine room and a few seconds later another one hit her abreast the boiler room. She rapidly heeled over to starboard on to her beam ends, broke in two and sank within two minutes. Most of those on board were trapped below although a few escaped through portholes or by getting on deck. Those on deck who were able to get overboard from the near vertical decks were usually sucked down with the ship – not all survived this. Some 30 liferafts floated off as did a few lifeboats, mostly capsized.
    The convoy dispersed, reformed and moved on whilst Petard and Paladin came back to search for the submarine. This did not prove easy and it was 30 minutes before the first depth charge attack was made on an uncertain target underneath where survivors were scattered – many were still in the water although officers were attempting to herd them together and get them on to rafts. As opportunity offered ships' boats were put down. After over an hour of attacks a large Japanese submarine suddenly surfaced at 1620. As she then appeared impervious to gun and DC attacks and fearing she might dive, Paladin set course to ram her. She failed and ended up with a hydroplane slice in her engine room extending 80 ft aft and was herself in danger of sinking! The Senior Officer, Petard, took over and decided to torpedo the sub with a single shot which missed. So did the next five single shots! Happily No. 7 hit and the submarine sank. Next morning Petard reached Addu Atoll with Paladin in tow thus leaving the convoy with no A/S escort.
      Higher Authorities were critical of the decision that the convoy should not zigzag. One might also comment on the tactics of the destroyers; however they did 'get their man'. The author considers that more of the Eastern Fleet's limited assets should have been devoted to the protection of human lives nor is he happy about DCs near survivors. Although some of his terminology suggests he is not a naval man he has put together a very good detailed account of a short and tragic incident of war.


Foreword by Gloria Smith (nèe West)


I had been discussing my experiences in the Women's Territorial Service (East Africa) during the Second World War, and in particular the tragic sinking of the troopship Khedive Ismail on 12 February 1944, with my daughter Maureen. As a result she suggested that I made notes about the incident. Shortly afterwards I received a letter from an ex-Army colleague asking me for news about her sister, who sadly had not survived the tragedy. I sent her a copy of the notes I had made; I then received a letter from Brian Crabb, who informed me that he was writing a book about the disaster and that he had attended a special 50th memorial service at St Mary le Strand, the Wren's church in the Strand, London, and had been given my notes by Sheila Hamnett, who had part organised the event and been handed them by a family relation. Through exchanging information and answering numerous questions I got to know Brian and we became pen friends. In November 1997 me and my family had great pleasure welcoming Brian and his wife Angie to a two-week visit to Cape Town.
    Brian's book Passage to Destiny was published in September the same year and went out of print in October 2010. This revised edition, although the main text generally remains the same, is larger than the original version and includes new stories. Additional illustrations include brochures advertising the ship's earlier scheduled voyages from Chile to New York and her pre-war activities in the Mediterranean under her Egyptian ownership. There are photographs of Aconcagua/Teno during building and launching and interior views of the two ships. It also includes photographs of the music room and the pianist, showing the grand piano where Nursing Sister Edith Bateman was playing the Warsaw Concerto during the first concert. She was silenced when the first torpedo struck the ship. There is also a picture of my friend Beatrice 'Tommy' Thomson, who I was sat with on the promenade deck at the time of the attack (we had decided to attend the second performance due to overcrowding); and Bombardier George Waterfield, the man who spoke to me on deck before I jumped into the sea, and a more recent photograph of Kilindini Docks where 54 nurses, 19 Wrens and 9 Women's Territorial Service girls excitedly boarded the troopship Khedive Ismail, after travelling overnight by train from Nairobi.
    Brian's research has revealed all but one of the Europeans Christian names and most of their ages, both lost and saved, of those on board. There is also detailed information about the naval career of Toshiaki Fukumura, the commander of the large Japanese submarine I 27.
    I am extremely grateful to Brian, who has travelled far and wide to acquire extra information and wish him every success with this new edition. I feel that his book is a fitting memorial to all those lost as a result of the sinking of the troopship Khedive Ismail and the survivors who have since passed away.

Gloria Angèle Smith (née West) survivor of the SS Khedive Ismail

Note from the author:

When I first met Gloria with my wife Angela, at Cape Town airport, she immediately warmed to us, as we did her. Her written dedication, to me, in the first copy, I feel, is worth recording in this new edition:


Dear Brian

Thank you for your fantastic effort in recording a tragic event which otherwise would have faded into obscurity.
I hope your book, which is a wonderful memorial to those involved, will be a resounding success. 

With Best Wishes

 Percival Crabb's personal account of the sinking of the troopship Khedive Ismail:

Dear Sir

I have been taking your Navy News for the past two years and reading it from end to end. Your issue of 1977 gives an account of the troopship Khedive Ismail and HM Ships Petard, Paladin and Hawkins. I happen to be very interested in this story, as I was one of the 199 who were picked up by HMS Paladin on that fateful day of 12 February 1944.
    I was in the POs mess with seven other petty officers when the troopship was torpedoed between 1400 and 1500. By I believe two tin fish, one in the engine room and one aft under the counter, I was asleep at the time. Immediately she listed over; everyone made a dash for the companionway except yours truly and PO Harper; we both made for the two portholes, which were open. I remember scrambling through and hobbling down the ship's side, stepping over the rolling chock and diving into the sea, by the time I surfaced the ship had gone. I swam to a green smoke canister some thirty yards away, hanging on to this I looked around me, there were several survivors either swimming or hanging on to whatever floated.
    The convoy had dispersed by this time and it seemed we were left to our own devices; some 200 yards away were two lifeboats from the ship, one upside down, survivors were all making for them so I decided to do the same.
    I am almost certain the submarine passed under me, as there was quite a turbulence of water and a wake left behind. This was the scene when the destroyers Petard and Paladin arrived at high speed, the submarine must have been picked up on their asdics, because they started depth charging some 300 yards away. I distinctly remember one charge from the thrower exploding just above the surface of the sea. It was a very strange experience to feel the shock waves coming through the water and the almighty thump in the stomach. Luckily, I was still hanging on to the smoke float, which took most of the concussion.
    Paladin had dropped off a motor boat and sea boat to pick up survivors. I eventually made it to the troopship's lifeboat and got aboard, we managed to row the boat towards Paladin, which was slowly circling us, while Petard was still depth charging further away. We got alongside Paladin and hastily scrambled aboard, among us were three nursing sisters, two wrens and one South African WTS; this was all that was left of their contingents. I remember a seaman throwing me a pair of sandals, as I was barefoot, because the steel decks of the destroyer were very hot.
    At that moment a large Japanese submarine came to the surface and both ships opened fire and then Paladin started to increase speed, she was going in to ram. We were told to hang on to something solid, as the ship closed the submarine at high speed, the submarine veered off and Paladin struck her a glancing blow, the submarine's hydroplanes tore a hole from the forward boiler room right aft to the engine room, putting the ship out of action, and flooding the boiler and engine rooms.
    Survivors and crew went about the ship throwing everything moveable over the side to lighten her. I dumped loads of 4 inch shells from ready use lockers. Both sets of quadruple torpedo tubes were turned outboard by hand and fired to lighten ship. On board Petard, six torpedoes were fired at the Japanese submarine, but they all missed, the seventh was fired by local control and did the trick. It blew the submarine in half; I watched the two halves upend and sink with no survivors.
    The next job was to remove everyone except essential personnel from Paladin to Petard, a tricky manoeuvre, but successfully done and now the job of all jobs, to take Paladin in tow and get her back to safety. After 36 hours of towing we arrived at Addu Atoll where the cruiser Hawkins was waiting with everything from pumps, collision mats, shoring and personnel to get Paladin seaworthy for the long trip to South Africa for essential repairs.
    All the survivors were transferred to Hawkins which proceeded to Colombo, Ceylon. We were landed a day later beside the dry dock and oiling berth. Terra firma never felt better when I limped ashore. I forgot to say I was recovering from a broken tibia and fibula, after six months in the 87th General Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya.
    There was a service doctor, his wife and baby son on board the troopship, but none of them survived the disaster; we were all told the ship sank in thirty-one seconds. I myself cannot say; I was occupied in a more urgent matter.
Hoping this puts some of the facts right, maybe I'm a bit out with the times, as it is now some thirty years since this dreadful thing happened, and now seems a very bad dream.

I Remain
Yours Sincerely

Stoker Percival Buster Crabb. The photograph was taken on 1 May 1940, just weeks after his involvement in the evacuation of Dunkirk (Operation Dynamo). He had helped crew a French torpedo boat (either the Bouclier, La Flore or L'Incomprise). However, while lying on the lower after deck, pulling on board waist-deep soldiers from the beach, he was shot in the leg. Luckily for him it was an in/out flesh wound. In August the same year he joined the brand new 6 inch cruiser HMS Kenya. He was forced to leave the ship in August 1943, when he broke his leg while playing in an inter-ship football competition.

Rotherham Dr*
(*not included in head count because subsequent research has only revealed one person with that surname, that of 37 year old Major Ewan Boileau Rotherham, No. 119626, Royal Army Medical Corps. Son of Frank Herbert and Hazel Durie Rotherham. Husband of G. T. Rotherham of Camberley, Surrey. Major Rotherham's qualifications were: MB (Batchelor of Medicine), BS (Batchelor of Surgery), MRCS (Member of the Royal College of Surgeons), LRCP (Licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians of London). He also had honours in Gynaecology and Obstetrics. It is the author's gut feeling that both are the same person and are, therefore, mentioned twice in the list of casualties).

List of people who survived the sinking of the SS Khedive Ismail on 12 February 1944 in the Indian Ocean:

Army Officers

Stevens John Auverny OBE (34) Lieutenant Colonel 44175

Please note: Captain Richard Wentworth Venning was not recorded on the Nominal List of Survivors initially taken on board HMS Petard on 12/13 February 1944. A letter sent to the author during August 2010, which was written by Captain Venning on 24 June 1944, revealed details that confirm that he was definitely a survivor of the troopship Khedive Ismail. Therefore his story has been added to the main text of this revision, as has his name to this list.
