John 'Jackie' Mitchell

Able Seaman

HMS Prince of Wales


My wife's uncle served on HMS Prince of Wales and died when it was sunk. His name was John "Jackie" Mitchell. Able Seaman, D/JX 212002, Royal Navy. 

Sadly Jackie married his wife Patricia only 4 days before setting out to sea in 1941, and he didn't return.

I am looking for any information, stories or photographs that might relate to Jackie, and any help would be greatly appreciated.


Contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
