Back to the HMS Prince of Wales crew list

Kenneth L. Byrne

Boy Seaman

HMS Prince of Wales


Ken survived the sinking of HMS Prince of Wales.
He was the secretary of the Prince of Wales and Repulse Survivors Association.
Ken was instrumental in obtaining the designation of the two capital ships from Force Z as 'Protected Places' under the terms of the Protection of Military Remains Act. The ships, HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse, were designated in 2001.

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Ken passed away on 17th March 2005 after an illness.
