Hi mac

I was just reading about the Curacoa  and got to Albert Tilley story the strange thing is my grandfather Harry Bull also died on the ship like Albert. But where Albert had a son born 23 september 1943  Harry had a
daughter born on the same day my mum Brenda. Harry never knew about mum. She is trying to find out all
about the Curacoa and swap story with anybodys family that was affected by this tragedy

all the best

Hello Karl,

A sad story, but coincidental all the same.

Poor Curacoa did not have a chance, being mowed down by the monster Queen Mary, who also had orders not to stop.

Had she done so, no doubt more lives would have been saved.

All in all, not a good day in the annals of the Royal Navy in WW2.

Best wishes,
