Good afternoon shipmates, I am hunting for information on the sinking of the destroyer Duchess in collision in the Irish Sea on 12th December 1939 and wondered if anybody out there could help. I have trawled the net and found only a few relatives, a newspaper appeal in Kent and Portsmouth have led to not one contact. I would like to write a book on her demise and career as well as try put a memorial up to the 129 crew who died that night. If anybody can help please message me. Cheers!
