Subject: Re Alcantara
Hello I was very interested in some of the information on your web site about the Alcantara. I am in the process of putting together a publication about the people from a parish in Scotland who served in WW2 and as it is nearly finished I am intend to produce a book on WW1 and I have an Alexander Laing from the parish who died on the Alcantara. I wonder may I use some of the information you have.
Of course, in due course I would love to see a copy of your final work.
Byeee for now
About Alcantara from other people, Patricia makes the point: " Hope this is of interest to you and otheres" so to use it does not appear to be a problem.
The report from Captain Wardle is held at the National Archive at Kew, and would be readily available to anyone searching their records, it was also written back in 1916, 93 years ago, once again I do not think you have any problem.
