John Armstrong, a stoker 1st Class, died on the HMS Mourne
My brother died on the HMS Mourne although he died before I was born, my sister remembers him well. If there is anyone who could help me gather information, I would be really grateful. My brothers name was John Armstrong and he was a stoker 1st Class.
Thank you to anyone who took the time to read my letter.

From the U-Boat net: HMS Mourne (K 261)
Sir you are a diamond! Information about our brother, how he died, where he died even if there was a body, has been imposible.When the internet arrived in my home just a few days ago I promised my sister I would find anything I could. Until only a couple of years ago we were unaware of the Plymouth Naval Memorial, which my sister has now visited. The only information my parents had was their son had been lost on HMS Mourne. I can only offer my thanks and that of my sister who will be receiving all information you sent. My sister does not have a computer and to be honest it is all so new to me. Your prompt reply and the fact you cared enough to send the information has made me feel very humble.
Thank you so much,
Promise I will shut up.
