      I am looking for passenger lists of Royal Canadian Engineer units that were aboard American military ships departing for Japan/Korea from Seattle during Korean War

          Dear Mr. Holmes,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          For information pertaining to the availability of passenger and crew lists of ships that served under the Military Sea Transportation Service (MSTS) and later, the Military Sealift Command (MSC), please contact the Public Affairs Office, Military Sealift Command, 914 Charles Morris Court, Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC 20398-5540.  The telephone number is 202-685-5156.  You will need to request this information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  You may also search their website at www.msc.navy.mil. At the bottom of the home page please click on FOIA and follow the directions in the FOIA Handbook. According to MSC, passenger and crew lists for the Korean War are no longer available.

           

          Since the passengers were Canadian, we suggest you contact the Library and Archives of Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, ON  K1A 0N4, Canada. 

           

          We also located two articles that may be of interest: Korean War On the Right Side of History and Private Joe P. Martinez (T-AP-187).

           

          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
