Hi Syd,

This is my great grandmother's sister who was killed at the Tollgate. I was told this story when I was a child and shown the newspaper so I would never forget. You know my sister Julia. I would like to correspond with you. I had a wonderful family.

I never doubt family lore as having some semblance to the truth. I would have thought that he was part of an RAF Squadron ground crew based in France and caught up in the evacuation from Dunkirk. Without a Squadron number, it's difficult to see him as a member of an aircraft crew, but if you have further details, that may help you fit him in to your family memory.

The Abukir seems a very small ship to expend 4 torpedoes on, just the one was enough to sink her almost instantly.

Many Thanks Kevin for the Information. My Cousin said he was Special Forces and was coming back after a recrudescence mission. It could be true.
Regards,
Peter

Lucknow Place is now a car park in Fishmarket Road. The cottages were either lost during the war or were knocked down. Clifton Place probably suffered the same fate!
