Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone help me with getting into contact with the HMS Dorsetshire Association?

    I got an address from the Navy News but it was out of date.

    Apparently there's only about survivors left, and I don't think it meets anymore, but any help appreciated.

    Thanks
     
  2. good day,
    clutching at straws i found this web sit, i have in front of me a letter, written by my fathers, mother's,' brother. dated in London 15th December 1937,posted in HongKong, he appears to have been a seaman by profession as he states that at that time ,he still has seven years to do,and that they were leaving the following satuday to "get a view of this war at first hand" he was sadly killed in action when the ship was sunk, and is on the kia list on the Dorsetshire web site, his name was Joseph Austin WO.
    anyway this may not be relevent to your search ,but i thought you would like to know, regards. Malcolm Beeston
