Hi Trotersr,  I would appreciate receiving whatever info you have.  However I'm unsure how we go about such things as I am new to this website and don't understand the etiquette of passing on info or addresses etc.

Hi BHJ, I too have just joined this site so also not sure of etiquette. However, am happy to advise my telephone number and perhaps you can confirm via this site that you will call me. Number 08 8296 4653. Wait to hear from you or your Father.

Hi Trostar,

Where abouts in Australia are you.  I am in Brisbane. Phone 07 54267398.  I will be in NZ in November in the South Island for some family catch ups with my Brother.  Last time we were chasing my dads world war 11 history.  I would appreciate anything you can post me and am prepared to pay you for postage and paper for copying.

Hi Trotersr, I have received the documents that you sent, and have sent you a couple of follow-up emails.  I have not received any response and therefore am wondering if I have the right email address.  Have you received any emails from me?  Regards, BHJ

Re: HMS Anking WW2
« Reply #35 on: Wednesday 30 October 13 12:04 GMT (UK) »
Hi, My father was a survivor of the sinking of HMS Anking.  He will be 90 in January and has no memory of any names of those on the ship. His recollection is that there were many more on board than what has been estimated. He says that anyone who could get on the ship tried to do so before it left harbour. It was full of soldiers, sailors and airmen from many allied nations.  The list you are showing involves those who were killed or missing in action. I think it only lists those who were assigned to the ship rather than those who were actually on board. BHJ
