John Henry Clatworthy was my uncle who served aboard HMS Repulse. We know that he survived the sinking and subsequently made it to Singapore where he became attached to HMS Sultan. He died aged 17 on 16/2/42 in the escape from Singapore. If anybody knows anything about him, or simply has any form of background information which would be of interest, I would be very grateful to hear from you.
Please contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
