It is my sad duty to announce that DEREK SMITH PJX273516, Anti Air Gunner, passed away mid April 2020, he was a survivor of the 1942 sinking by a U-Boat in the Med.

Kind regards,

This is a "Crossing the Line" certificate. It is earned by sailors the first time they cross the equator.

My grandad, Earnest Newman from Portsmouth was one of the survivors in the sinking of HMS Eagle in 1942. He was a gunner and lived a happy life until he sadly died of heart failure in 2006. I'm one proud granddaughter and very eager to hear some stories about him, if any survivors are out there please get in touch.
