Back to the HMS Repulse crew list

James Raymond Eke
Cook

 

My Grandfather's brother James Raymond Eke was a cook and died aboard the HMS Repulse and until now very little information had been received by the family. 

My Grandfather is now 87 years young and feels some comfort knowing that his brother is remembered and 'honoured' by name on this website. 

It would be nice to take further information back to my Grandfather, if any survivor out there remembers his brother James, please contact me. 

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