HMS Suffolk , that Don's relative was on
Posted by Norman Dunn on March 15, 2019, 10:47 pm
Hebburn historian and friend Derek Dodds saw Don Scott's post & photo taken of his Kirtley hero relative on HMS Suffolk.
By coincidence Derek's dad was also on HMS Suffolk so he sent me this photo taken on the ship. Derek wrote, My father served on Suffolk at exactly the same time and was in Shanghai. He was a Royal Marine and was on the ship until the early part of the war when he was sent to help (and was badly wounded) in the defence of Malta. He lived in West Street and probably knew the other sailor. All Hebburn lads and all heroes.
