My late father, John Pountney, was a 20 year old seaman on the Repulse when she was sunk. I believe he was a gunner on one of the secondary guns. 

I'm afraid I know little about them as Father never put any notes on the backs of the photos. I know he was a boxer so that probably explains the two shots of the boxing match, he might well have been one of the participants.
The guys on the other pictures I haven't got a clue about and can only assume they were taken on the Repulse.

If anyone can identify anyone in these pictures, please let me know, I can supply larger versions of the boxing matches, in greater detail.
