Hi Guys,
No further information from my wife's cousin from Switzerland I'm afraid. Thanks again.

Re: Desperately seeking info on MGB 17

Hi Admin and Stephen, Many thanks for the further information. My wife's cousin who lives in Switzerland is coming to visit for a few days. We have asked her to bring any information re David's service with her so we'll see if I can cast any more light on things after the weekend. Thanks again. Rega...

Re: Desperately seeking info on MGB 17

Hi Steve,
Many thanks for your continued efforts and interest. I'm hoping that there may be some new information when you look at the documents but as you say maybe yes maybe no. Do you happen to know what campaign medals David would have been entitled to? Thanks again.
My Regards,
Norman.

Re: Desperately seeking info on MGB 17

Hi Admin, Many thanks for the help re the film from the I.W.M., I got it to work and showed it to my wife, David's niece, who was delighted and saddened at the same time. From your post I get the idea that it could have been a mine and that the actual reason MGB 17 sank is lost in the confusion of w...

Re: Desperately seeking info on MGB 17

Hi Admin and Steve, Many thanks once again for your efforts and links on our behalf. It seems the fate of MGB17 is quite elusive. Although a novice regarding this kind of warfare it does appear, to me at least, that if MGB17 had struck a mine potentially there would have been more casualties. Again ...

Re: Desperately seeking info on MGB 17

Hi Guys, Many thanks for your very informative replies. As far as David's service is concerned we know nothing at all. It was a taboo subject for my wife's grandmother, David's mother. David had a sister and a brother, my wife's aunt and father respectively, both younger than David and both with lit...
