British Cruiser HMS Caledon
February 15, 2009
Hello again, Mac.
It has been a long time since I emailed you personally. (see "Floyd Russell served aboard the USS Mugford" ) Time is "fleeting" and we are growing older (thank God). I still follow your website.
I'm sure you have long since forgotten my first email to you. It was about the attackon Convoy UGS-40 on 11 May 1944. You were very helpful to me then and now I have another question for you: Can you tell me how to obtain complete data about the British Cruiser HMS Caledon. As I mentioned she was quite helpful in her efforts during the attack on Convoy UGS-40.
I hope you an your family are well. Also, I pray the terrible fires in Australia will end soon and any arsonists involved will be severely punished.
Again, thanks for your kindness and help.
I well recall our first contact, and that attack on Convoy UGS-40.
The fires in my state of Victoria have been devasting, some 181 dead, almost 2,000 houses destroyed and 7,000 now homeless.
We are in a safe area thankfully.
It would appear that a number were deliberately lit by mad arsonists, and a man has been charged and is in custody for lighting fires in the east in Gippsland, I just cannot comprehend the mental state of such people.
Hope this is of some assistance.
