Back to the HMS Prince of Wales crew list

Frederick Lawrence (LOL) Kettle

Able Seaman

HMS Prince of Wales


My father served on board the Prince of Wales. He was there during the engagement with the Bismarck, the Atlantic Charter and the fateful sinking 10th December 1941. Thankfully he survived but was later captured during the Fall of Singapore. He was then imprisoned in Sumatra until the end of the war.
He sadly died on 22nd February 2003 and he was known as Able Bodied Seaman Frederick Lawrence (LOL) Kettle.

Yours faithfully,
Wendy Williams.
