Request for information from another site.....

I hope this is OK to post on this page. I was at the service in St Ann's Chapel yesterday for the families of all those whose ashes have been committed at sea in the last year. I met the widow of a submariner, who died earlier this year, Edward Gavin Mills. He was born in 1935 and suffered a serious accident when on a submarine in 1961 (when he was 26) and was invalided out of the navy. He never spoke about his accident but his widow, Mary is keen to find out what submarine he was on and a bit more about his Naval service. Is there anyone on here who could help or who could point me in the right direction. I have found records of one submarine, HMS Finwhale, which was damaged in 1961 in an accident.

@Polycell was this during your time Fred?

I take it she hasn't got a copy of his Docs. She can request them as a widow and perhaps they can shed some light on it.

She's posted it on the We Remember Submariners site, Mods are quite rightly touchy about what is posted there, I'll see if I can get her to post on here it will be easier to ask questions
