      Is there a list of ships that were involved in Operation Magic Carpet post-WWII? I am hoping to narrow down which transport ship my grandmother, Clara F. Morris, and her 3 kids took back to Europe to join my grandfather, Lt. Col. James Morris, who remained in Ludwigsburg, Germany, to aid in the reconstruction. I know that the ship was the SS Alexander "Something" and would have had a destination for the port of Bremerhaven; it struck a mine in the North Sea in either 1946 or 1947 and needed to be hauled back to Bremerhaven for repair. Many thanks
