Was this not part of the war effort by sailors that gave their lives to feed us. My uncle won the OBE and Lloyds medal when his ship Sydney star was torpedoed but survived Antony Duggan

Yes the merchant navy was part of the war effort,

Is that all you wanted to say or do you have a specific suggestion or question to ask?

Hi Antony,

We also have a military chat board, WWII questions/comments are better placed there for a response.
