William George Young

HMS Prince of Wales


My father-in-law's older brother William George (Bill) Young died when the 'HMS Prince of Wales' was sunk in December 1941 by the Japanese off the Malaysian coast. I would like to get in touch with any survivors who might have known him. 

Please contact me with any information.
