W.D. Puttock, Acting Petty Officer, HMS Voltaire
Naively I had no idea this sort of information existed I was just thinking about my Dad and keyed in the word VolItaire and all this information came out.
My Dad served on the Voltaire as Acting Petty Officer I believe and was taken prisoner when she was sunk.
Do you have any more information on him? I remember him telling the story that he and a few others escaped from the prison camp only a few days before a regiment from the Blackwatch rescued them.
All I have is the fact your Dad is listed in this HMS Voltaire Roll of Honour at Number 126 under Prisoners of War. He is not mentioned in Roger Coward's Book " Sailors in Cages."
