Thomas William Huges serve on SS Wear?
March 10, 2011
I am hoping you are able to shed some light on Thomas William Huges born 1924 williamstown was a radio operator WWII - and supposedly to do with American Navy - made to join at 16-17 years of age - served SS Wear - when it was sunk at some stage - I work at the HMAS Cerberus Museum and am trying to help a gentleman piece together his father's service

The only SS Wear /I can find is this one:
As she sank in 1910, it is obviously not the right one for Thomas.
Should his name read Hughes?
I must say its an odd story, how could an Australian National be forced to work with the US Navy?
Sorry, but I am unable to help with the data you have provided. There was no SS Wear sunk in WW2.
There is no T W Hughes or TW Huges listed either in the RAN or the Merchant Navy on the WW2roll.gov.au site.
