Just to let you know my Grandfather passed away on Saturday 11th November 2006 aged 91, fitting in some respects as it was the 11/11.
Tom is survived by his Son Barry, Daughter in-Law Linda, Grandchildren Lisa, Mark, James and Christopher and his 10 great grandchildren.
I managed to get duplicates of his medals here in Australia. Tomís service will be held this Friday.

I have been waiting a long time to get more info and see how those who served are honored.
My Grandfather served on the Prince of Wales, his name is Tommy Bell, father of Barry Bell. Tom is now in is mid 80`s and still loves to tell the stories. He was 5 decks down 5 min before the attack, a very lucky man. He now lives in Australia and has 4 loving grand children and 7.5 great grand children.
God Bless all who served.
