MY NAME IS ROY SKEATS, I HAVE JUST STARTED RESEACHING MY LATE FATHER PHIL SKEATS. HE WAS ON THE ''VOLTAIRE'' WHEN SHE WAS ATTACKED BY ''THOR'' IN 1941, HE WAS TAKEN POW AND WAS IN ''BLECKHAMMER,UBER HEYDEBRECK''UNTIL 1945 THEN ON THE INFAMOUS DEATH MARCH TO BAVARIA GERMANY, HE WAS A FIREMAN ON THE VOLTAIRE AT THE TIME. DOES ANY ONE REMEMBER HIM? IF SO I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THEM.
Nice to hear from you.
I am sure on our Roll of Honour for HMS Voltaire that you found your late Father listed:
We will add your message to AHOY, perhaps some one may have known your Father and may write to us.
