In creating my mother's genealogy chart, I know my Uncle Norman George Cameron Thompson died on HMS Repulse.
I've found many interesting sites on the ship, her crew, and my uncles death notification in the Dundee, Scotland Honour Roll. What was more amazing was that on this site I found an interview with Lt. Haruki Iki of the Kanoya Air Corps - one of the Japanese "Betty" pilots that torpedoed and sunk the Repulse.
I cannot feel ill will against Haruki san as he was only doing his job, as Norman was.
Haruki san was the victor.
