Back to the HMS Jupiter crew list

Alpha Kenneth Wilkin
Steward

Service No: D/LX29104 

 

Alpha died some time after HMS Jupiter was sunk.
The exact details of his death are unknown. As he is listed as having "died at sea" on the 10th March 1942, it suggests that he was in a lifeboat for 11 days prior to his death. There is a reference made to one of the survivors having died whilst still at sea in the lifeboats.
There is a web page dedicated to Steward Alpha Kenneth Wilkin and other family members here
