Welcome to The HMS Dunedin Society.
The Dunedin Society is our collective organisation designed to keep alive the memories of HMS Dunedin and her men. It is entirely voluntary and free to join and its membership is worldwide. The society organises commemorative events, including the annual 24th November ceremonies. If you wish to find out more or have any information about HMS Dunedin that we could publicise on our website please Contact Us.
Did your relative or ancestor serve in HMS Dunedin?
Have a look on our Ship’s Company page where you will find lists of all the casualties and survivors of the sinking as well as a few names of those who served prior to November 1941. For those members of the ship’s company on whom we have specific information, they have their own pages. We update these pages from time to time with new information kindly sent to us. Latest updates include the pages for the Watkins twins, John and George; Captain of the Royal Marines Richard Maul; Stoker Gordon Lowe; Able Seaman John Mullan; Stoker, 1st Class, JW (Jack) Harvey; Ordinary Seaman John Murray Wright, and Leading Telegraphist Fred Hawks.
Reunion and Memorial Service
This November, we invite anyone with an interest in HMS Dunedin to the Royal Naval Memorial at Southsea for a gathering and short act of remembrance. This will be less formal than previous years, but it will again be our opportunity to remember the men of HMS Dunedin, both those whose names adorn the memorial and the survivors we were privileged to know.
Check back here in the coming weeks for details of the arrangements and have a look here for an account of last year’s reunion.
The memory of the men of HMS Dunedin lives on.
