Back to the HMS Repulse crew list

William Taylor
Stoker 2nd Class
Service no. KX 118252


William Taylor was my Father, he was a stoker 2c on board HMS Repulse at the time of her sinking on Dec 10th 1941. He survived the sinking and was picked up by, I believe, HMS Electra. He is shown on his certificate of service as transferring from Cabot to Repulse 6th August 41 to 10th December and then to Indomitable 11th December 41 to 18th March 42 as stoker 2c and then till 1st Dec 1942 on the same ship as 'stoker 1'.
I have a lot of photos and documentary information which I can scan and e-mail to you if you wish.
He was discharged class A from Drake 18th March? (a little unclear) 1946.
My father died 7 years ago but I have all his records and photo album including a photo in uniform (he looks quite splendid!).

Thank you
