think the sailor A2 on the Unknown
Sailors page is my Dads cousin Ordinary seaman Robert Nesbitt, I cannot say for certain but
I knew his brother and he has the same likeness, by all accounts he was killed on board
HMS Repulse as he was going down the ammunition lift, when a bomb hit.
Please contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
