see "Japanese Aircraft overwhelm Repulse and Prince of Wales on the 10th. of December 1941. 840 Sailors die"

Dear Sir
My uncle, Frank Webb, served as torpedo instructor on the Repulse when she was sunk.  Fortunately, he both survived and was able to get back to Colombo. After the War, he emigrated to Australia and enrolled at their naval base at Fremantle until retirement.
For the purpose of completing a family tree, I need to know his dates and hope you can point me in the right direction,  Would the Survivors' Association retain such personal data?  If not, can you give contact details at Fremantle?
I hope to hear from you soon.  Thank you
Best wishes
Russell Webb
