This is a page from his service record that lists the various ships he served on at what dates.

A fabulous photograph my Grandfather took from the bridge of HMS Prince of Wales.

This is the telegram My Grandmother received confirming his survival, (She had previously received one announcing his death but it turned out this was a mix up with another person with the same surname unfortunately she did not keep the earlier version.

My Grandfather George Hallam was a survivor of the Prince of Wales, although he never really recovered from the effects of the oil.

He did however live until July 1969, which unfortunately was not long enough for me to get to know him, as it was just 3 weeks after I was born.

In the unlikely event anyone does have memories of him I would be very grateful to hear of these.


Please contact myself or Andy (Webmaster) with any information.
