I think the sailor A2 on the Unknown Sailors page is my Dads cousin Ordinary seaman Robert Nesbitt, I cannot say for certain but I knew his brother and he has the same likeness, by all accounts he was killed on board HMS Repulse as he was going down the ammunition lift, when a bomb hit.
I found your website very interesting, I have printed the ten men photograph and I am hoping to be in contact with Roberts sister to confirm.
