HMS Euryalus (WW1 Cruiser)
September 25, 2009
Hope you don't mind me writing. I have a photopostcard of some of the crew of HMS Euryalus (it took a long time to decipher the name from the original photo, the cap which the chap on the far right is wearing) This picture comes from a batch of photos I have found at a bungalow in Crawley, West Sussex UK - some taken in the 1920s and some in the 30s. They included a couple taken off the coast at Smyrna. If so, then the pics of the crew mates should be from the WW1 cruiser. An internet search brought me to your? comment :
In case you are interested the HMS Euryalus crew pic, can be viewed at : http://homepage.ntlworld.com/taostream/Euryalus%20crewmates.html
The other photos might be of interest and can be accessed via: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/taostream/start.html
I'd be delighted to hear from you if you've any comments or information concerning the photos, I don't know any of the crew featured in the photo and it would be great to put some names to faces - but that might be a long shot!?
All the best
Thank you for your post card etc, I am afraid I can shed no light about any crew names.
We are always pleased to have detail about older ships of the Royal Navy before it diaappears into limbo
