Back to the HMS Li-Wo crew list

John Thomas Frederick G. Sullivan Bennett
Able Seaman

Service No: D/SSX 22379

 

We believe that John died some time after HMS Li Wo was sunk, and that he may have been killed by Japanese troops on Bangka Island.
We believe this is the John Bennett that was on HMS Li Wo, despite the CWGC record stating otherwise.
John also served on HMS Repulse and he is listed under that ship here

Please contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
