My Dad served on the HMS Cumberland

Hi my dad served on the HMS Cumberland during WW2 and I recall stories about the battle of the river plate etc.

Are there any old timers who may have been around at that time. 

My dads name was Leonard Thomas Berlyn.

I am not aware of any who were aboard Cumberland at the time of the River Plate action.
