Islanders mark sinking of HMS Charybdis and HMS Limbourne

HUNDREDS of islanders were involved with the last official HMS Charybdis and HMS Limbourne Memorial Weekend.

While the Sunday memorial service will continue, the rest of the events will be scaled back as the number of survivors from the two ships reduces.

The vessels hold a special significance for islanders, as more than 5,000 of them turned out for the burial of the 21 bodies of the crewmen who were washed up on Guernsey’s shore in 1943. It was one of the acts of defiance during the German Occupation because attendance was forbidden.
