H J Dukem, served in HMS Voltaire

October 17, 2009
Subject: HJ Duke


A dear friend of ours served on HMS Voltaire, unfortunately he died a few months ago. Apparently he was never keen to discuss his time in the POW camps etc. His wife has brought up to us a whole load of photos from the POW camp mainly of the entertainments, bands & pantomimes. We also have a little notebook which includes a poem and a few notes and names and a timeline of their march to POW camp. If they would be of interest I would be happy to scan them in and forward onto you.



Yes please, we are always seeking to expand any area on AHOY, about which I have written.

So thanks in advance.
