Lt Richard John Wood (Jacky), killed in H.M.S. Voltaire?
October 19, 2011
On the web I have read several pieces about the book Sailors in Cages. As the book is about the crew of HMS Voltaire, I was wondering whether you have a copy and if so whether you might scan through to see if there is a reference to Lt Richard John Wood (Jacky) who was killed when the ship sank. He was my wife's uncle.
Yes I have a copy of Sailors in Cages, it does not carry an index,
None the less I could not find Lieutenant J R Wood,
