Stoker First Class

My Mom was married for 6 months to Ted before he was killed on HMS Repulse. She was never told the anything like the full story and has all her life, (she's now 86) believed that he survived the attack and was subsequently taken prisoner and killed by the Japanese. It would be wonderful if she could at last know what happened to him and put her worst fears to rest. She still find it difficult to talk about it and still cries. This website is a wonderful comfort

The depot ship HMS Anking was sunk by Japanese gunfire at 06:30 on 4 March along with HMAS Yarra, MMS 51 and Francol.
