Thomas O'Donoghue was my Great Uncle. As a child I remember my mother talking about "Tommy who was lost on the Repulse" As all of his siblings have now passed away, does anybody remember Tommy either when he joined up or on HMS Repulse?
Did he have any friends amongst his fellow Irishmen? Any information would be appreciated.
Please contact myself or Andy (webmaster) with any information.
