Boy 1st Class George Isaac Playle, R.N.

George Playle, son of George and Alice Playle, of Romford, Essex, England. Both he and his brother, Alfred served on the Goliath, Alfred was reassigned to minesweeping in the North Sea, but George remained with the Goliath and was one of the unfortunates. This locket was worn by my great grandmother most of her life and is the only known image of George.
