Grandfather, Sidney Murphy, was the Gunnery Officer of the HMS Voltaire
Good afternoon, from Essex, United Kingdom.
Thank you for your E-Mail about HMS Voltaire, I regret that I have not kept the addresses of either
Roderick, or George Tidbury, it is almost a year since I was in touch with them. I get so many messages about the different articles on Ahoy, that after some time, I delete them. I am remiss in not just jotting down these addresses, as a hard copy for reference when someone such as yourself is after some information, I am sorry I am of no help to you.
Should you fulfil your intent to write about Voltaire, and her epic struggle, I would be pleased to learn about it in due course. I note your E-Mail address has Southend in its title, both my parents came from that area in Essex, and I have made a visit to that part of England.
Best wishes, again my apologies for being unhelpful.
