Back to the HMS Repulse crew list

Harry Laurence Cantell Barwis

CPO Writer


I've been looking through the Casualties & Crew Members pages of your website looking for a mention of my ancestor Harry Barwis, who I recently found had died at the sinking of HMS Repulse. I haven't been able to find him, so I thought I would send you details about him, so that he can be added to your website.

Thanks, Pippa Winter.

Please contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
