Re: Very Interesting....
Thanks for this ... especially as I'm about to start reading up on HMS Manchester.
Doing a quick glance at the catalogue of the National Archives (PRO) at Kew - this document comes up quickly but the Ships Logs for Ledbury are not there. Its worth noting that: Whilst all ships logs are continued for 1939 and the early months of 1940, thereafter, the majority of logs for ships smaller than cruisers appear not to have survived for the remaining war years.
(from the PRO).
I suspect that they were destroyed post 1945 - there were just so many. A great pity ...
Thanks again for posting.
Thanks for this, Sandy. It puts a heroically human face on these incidents. It is research like this that brings our little ships alive...
After Peter Ewell's "Easy Quiz" and having a bit of spare time on my hands I did a bit of looking on the web to find out more about HMS Ledbury.
I came across an intersting transcript of
OPERATION PEDESTAL - LETTER OF PROCEEDINGS.
