Comments:  My father,PO Joseph Henry Rees; PTI, Served on HMS Edinburgh 16.10 41 to 2 May 1942 He attended several Edinburgh Reunions. He died November 1983. My mother, Mabel Gertrude Rees, is now 90 and has told us allthat she remembers of that time,which is not very much as it was a secretive time and my father did not talk about his wartime experiences. They were married in Pembrey, Dad's home village in Carmarthenshire on 24th January 1942. She was pregnant with me when she heard that he was lost at sea and feared dead.I was born in South Queensferry on 17th October 1942. After his time in a Russian survivors' camp he was very ill when he returned. Although I had some idea of the conditions on the Arctic Convoys from reading, it was only when I watched the recent documentary on the Yesterday Channel that I was better able to understand the bravery involved. We three children have always been proud of our Dad. He was dearly loved and sorely missed. Thank you for your efforts in compiling this web site. It is a wonderful memorial. Brenda

Comments:  My late uncle, Cdr Arthur Bailey OBE RN survived the sinking of Edinburgh and spent some months in Murmansk awaiting repatriation. Some of the items he collected in Russia were recently on display at the Imperial War Museum North, and I was honoured to be Bandmaster of the RM Band aboard HMS London during ceremonies in Murmansk and Archangel in 1991 for the 50th anniversary of Operation Dervish. I met and talked to many Arctic Convolys Veterans there. Time for a campaign medal, surely?

Comments:  My father, Leonard A H Mizen (Len - now deceased), was onboard HMS Edinburgh at the time of the sinking. He was a RM Bandsman (RMB X645) but the precise date of joining the ship & jis rank at the time, I do not yet know. After the sinking I know he stayed in Murmansk (Polyarno) for 6/7 months before repatriation. I have a photo of him & other 'bandies' with some Russian hosts taken in Murmansk. I also have his HMS Edinburgh 'crossing the line' certificate from 24 Aug 1941, which I could photograph if you would like a copy.

Comments:  I have recently come across some pages of a log covering the period 23-24 July 1941, which reports the actions of the 11th Battalion Lancs Fusiliers on board H.M.S. Edinburgh. I understand that the Battalion was on its way to Malta. In a seperate document there is mention of some trouble and somone on board being 'locked up'. Do you have any idea what that was about? Also would it be possible to obtain a photo (hard copy) of H.M.S Edinburgh? Regards Joe Bamford.

Comments:  During WW2 when the HMS Edinburgh was in the Middle dock in South Shields my father invited one of the Engine Room Artificers to our home. We stayed friends until he was lost at sea when the ship was torpedoed. I have tried various searches to find his details but without success. I am sure that his name was Bill Phelan from Manchester, I am not sure if my spelling is correct but he was one of the few who lost their lives when the torpedo his the engine room. I would be pleased to fine anyone who knew him. Tom Caskey

Comments:  Ronald was my step-brother. He joined the Navy as a boy and as soon as he was permitted to go to sea in wartime at age 18 he was posted to HMS Edinburgh. He survived the sinking and spent some time in Russia before repatriation and compassionate leave. He never spoke of his experience and was posted to the war in the far east where he contracted TB and was invalided home where sadly he died in 1947. We only learned later of the ordeal he and his shipmates endured. If any remember him we would be grateful to hear please.

Comments:  I was wondering if there any survivors from the Edinburgh still alive, who may remember or have any photos of my Uncle Arty. We believed he died during the first attack on the Edinburgh. His full name was Benjamin Arthur Hiller, known by his family as Arty. My father, Arty's younger brother (Sam Hiller) is still alive and would be grateful for any information. Dad also served from the start to the end of the war and served mainly on the Victorious. Keep up the good work, a remarkable site preserving history and a memorial to all who died on the HMS Edinburgh.

Comments:  My father (Fred Bridge) from Swindon in Wiltshire was I believe an ERA on the Edinburgh when she was sunk. Luckily for me he survived (and a further sinking on another ship later during the war) as I was born in 1947. While on a visit to London in 1990 I tried to get him to go on HMS Belfast, but he declined saying that as she was a similar ship it would bring back too many bad memories. He left an album of photographs taken while in the Navy and I will up-load them when I can get them scanned. He never really said a lot about the things he had been through, so it is so nice to see a web page which for me can fill in many of the blanks in the ships history. My father unfortunately died in 1991 from a lung tumour which is suspected to have been caused by asbestos particles, which he had either picked up from his time in the various ship engine rooms, or even possibly from his time when serving his engineering apprenticeship with the Great Western Railway. If there are any of his old ship mates out there who knew him then please get in touch. Ian Bridge
