Frederick died on 8th August 1942. At the time HMS Express was serving in the Indian Ocean.

I am looking for info about my Uncle Frederick Collins. We know that he had served 22 years approx. He was on HMS Express when he was lost overboard on 8th August 1942 after leaving Cape Town Harbour on the 7th August 1942. I would like to trace his naval career.

Thank you.
