    Sorry, MB. Don't mind me. Just trying to keep it rolling. Hints are available upon request, since this one may be tricky.

    There were only about fifteen British/Commonwealth hospital ships. Unfortunately, I can't tell you which it is. It's not Isle of Thanet, but of course, there are a lot of ships that it isn't.

    If we have to rely on memory, I have no hope. We can't ban books, can we?

    AHS Centaur she was. Found her with Google myself, so I expect other people can as well.

    I think mcoffee got it first, so it's your ball.

    USS General W A Mann. I recently bought a 1:2400 USS General John Pope. Maybe I should build her as General Mann instead.

    It is the Mann. The Old Gunner rode her to Casablanca in March '44.

    Its US and it is a tender either sub or destroyer for starters.

    It is U.S. but it is not a tender, though it uses the same hull as a lot of tenders, so I can see where you might guess that.

    The hull looks like a Klondike but superstructure is too far aft for one. Possibly a sealift ship but all those carleys and boats makes me think she had a pretty large complement.

    No, Klondike's a little smaller and this ship isn't a tender of any kind. Nor is she a marine lift ship. You're on the right track with the carleys and boats, though.

    Looks like the "General Squier", AP-130.

    Very close, Tom. Very close indeed, but not quite there.

    Aha, perhaps the
    USS General T. H. Bliss (AP-131)

    There you have it, Tom. I think the combination of the low superstructure and the aft engineering plant does make them look strangely tenderish. You're go, Tom.
