I wonder if anyone remembers my Great Uncle Roy Bickenson who survived the sinking of HMS Repulse? He died on HMS Mahrata in 1944 in the Barents Sea. He was my Gran's (Ena Jose) youngest brother. My Gran is 92. I would love to be able to tell her that Roy is remembered.
Contact myself or Andy (webmaster) with any information.
