Tucker Hall, son of Thomas Hall, wrote on 19 August 2009: I’m pretty sure the man standing back row, second from the right, is my father, Thomas W. Hall, RNVR.¬† He¬†served on the Dunedin as a¬†signalman¬†and was transferred to Admiralty House, Pembroke, Bermuda when the ship called here.¬† He met & then married my mother, Joyce Dallas,¬†on 20 August, 1942.¬† I don’t know that much about his war service (he would never talk of it) but I know that he¬†then served on a minesweeper in the Mediterranean (possibly named the “Acasta”) before being demob’ed in 1946 and returning to Bermuda, where he lived for the rest of his life.¬† He was a photographer of some local note for many years before his eyesight failed.¬† He died in 1992, age 72, of natural causes.
