Harry John Germaine
While tracing my family
tree, I came across my great uncle's name and that has led me to this web site.
His father served with the
Royal Artillery during WW1, under the name German, also Harry's brother
Olaf German used his own name in the Buffs 1930-36, I can understand why he did this.
Harry served on HMS Prince of Wales, as an ordinary seaman, there was a letter sent saying he was missing off Malaysia, but no more is known.
any one have information on him?
Contact myself or Andy (webmaster) with any information.
