Ralph Robson

Ralph Robson died on September 16th 1994 at the age of 76, having been a survivor of the Sinking of HMS Repulse at the age of 23.

(Ralph was actually a member of Prince of Wales' crew, but was swapped with a crewman who'd had an altercation with another Repulse crew member and was moved temporarily to Prince of Wales to 'cool off'.)

In his memoirs, Ralph mentions by name a few crew members of Prince of Wales' crew:

Signal Bosun Fisher

Signal boy Henry Herron

Signal boy 'Tich' Backhouse
