Thomas Wallace

HMS Prince of Wales

 

I am trying to trace a relative - Thomas Wallace, Royal Marine, HMS Prince Of Wales. Listed as missing presumed dead Feb.16, 42.

I suspect he was a 'Plymouth Argyle'. He was from Paisley, Scotland, very tall and would have been 25 at the time of his death.

There seems to be conflicting accounts as to whether he made it to a camp or died in the evacuation. Any suggestions on where to begin would be greatly appreciated. Christopher 

Please contact myself or Andy (webmaster) with any information.
