Back to the HMS Repulse crew list

Robert Henry Blohm

Royal Marine

 

I am looking for any information on my uncle Bobby Blohm, who I believe survived the sinking of The Repulse but was killed in action in Singapore. I believe he is included on a war memorial/monument in either Portsmouth or Plymouth. If anyone has any info on this or my uncle I will be very grateful.

There is only one Blohm listed in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission records. He is listed as a Royal Marine from HMS Prince of Wales.

However, we believe that this record is incorrect and we have therefore listed him under HMS Repulse.

Please contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
