My father in law left me a journal from a midshipman from H.M.S. Warspite and I am wondering would it be of personal value to your archives or a relative of the man. His name was Alan C. Mather and the journal is dated 18th May 1921 to 14th April 1923. I have no information as to when and where Vinnie McCann came across this journal as our family have no connection to this warship. Hoping it will be of interest to someone.

Regards,
Bernadette McCann

My father Mr. George E. J. Harris, was a Royal Marine Gunner on HMS Warspite on D-Day 1944. He would have been 100 years old this year. He served from 1938 to 1951.

I'm trying to trace any records of my great uncle who, according to family 'knowledge' and a few bits of memorabilia, was on the Warspite. There's a story about him being on board when it was torpedoed, but I don't even know if this is a true story or not.

I don't know how to find records to verify anything we know. I've drawn a blank on most avenues. It's as though he never existed in the navy. His name was Harry (Henry) Gatie and he lived in Carlisle, Cumbria. I think he was born April 6th 1909. Would be most grateful if anyone out there can help. Perhaps a crew list?

Thanks,
