My name is Gerard Howells, I was hoping that you could put me in touch with someone who served on the same ship as my dad; Robert (Bob) Howells.
John Lester has responded on your web site and served on the same ship as my dad the "Richmond Castle"when it was sunk in August 1942.
Sadly my dad died a few years ago.
I have done some research on the Richmond Castle and came across John Lester’s account of the attack on the ship in the book The Battle for the Atlantic by Andrew Williams. I would like to get in touch with John Lester and ask if he remembers my dad.
Myself and my sister can be contacted on the above e mail addresses.
