2020 commemoration, 24th November: remembering the men of HMS Dunedin.
Sadly, relatives and friends were unable to gather at the Royal Naval Memorial on Southsea Common and at the National Arboretum in Staffordshire on 24th November to pay tribute to the men of HMS Dunedin. This year, of course, the Covid pandemic prevented us from being together, but I am sure we were each able to take a private moment to commemorate HMS Dunedin and her ship’s company. Let’s all look forward to our being together again for the eightieth anniversary next year.
Best wishes to you all.
Stuart Gill OBE, HMS Dunedin Society
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 AJ Williams; 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.
The memory of the men of HMS Dunedin lives on.
