Harcalo to Harpagon

This page has been updated to include basic information about those that lost their lives. The data is by courtesy of the CWGC and I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as well as those lost at sea and recorded on the Tower Hill memorial. In most cases further family information about the individuals is available on the CWGC website - External Ref. #7.

Harmatris

She was a 5,395 grt steam cargo ship that survived the war.

However, according to the CWGC database, the Date of Death of Mr. Sanders was 3 April 1941 so is not related to either of these events. Please see the entry for him on the Queries and Omissions page under 'Omissions'.
