Back to the HMS Prince of Wales crew list

Edward William Lionel Murch


HMS Prince of Wales


My cousin, Edward William Lionel Murch, served on board the Prince of Wales but I understand he left the ship at Singapore to return to Britain to be awarded his second ring. My late Uncle, Theodore Edward Murch, was a Shipwright Lieutenant on board the ship at the time of its demise, which he survived.

When the news of the sinking was received by the family here in Plymouth, there was much consternation because naturally they thought that both of them had been lost. I cannot imagine the relief when Teddy turned up in Plymouth and when his father, my Uncle Ted, arrived home safe and well in due course.
