Joseph Patrick Lang

Stoker 2nd Class

HMS Prince of Wales


Joseph Patrick Lang (Stoker 2nd class) was my grand uncle. I can send you a scan of one of the few pictures I have of him. I don't have any of his service medals as I was informed by my grandfather that the were blocked as the loss of Prince of Wales was more or less Churchill's fault. We only knew he died in the battle but we don't know if his body was recovered.
