At 11 o’clock on Friday 13th October 2017 on a dull overcast morning and with dense fog rolling in from the sea, I laid my wreath at the Plymouth Naval memorial,  this was followed by two minutes silence and then the Last Post was played via a link on the Royal British Legion website. I took the time to view all the men on this memorial and took some photo’s. Here are a few to share with you.

The Poppies on Tour – Credit: Sue Church

 

I was thrilled to learn just before my visit that the Poppies from the Tower of London would be on tour & be here in Plymouth at the same time. Seeing them beautifully  arranged at the memorial, was a awesome site, very moving and especially seeing them at night time.

It was whilst I was talking to one of the team of staff on hand to help visitors with information or just hear their stories, I was told that at 6pm on Friday evenings, the Last Post would be played by a Bugler. This was a very special and moving moment, one I will NEVER forget!!!

HMS Mary Rose -The Catalysts of my One-Name Study 

I joined the Guild of One-Names Studies in November 2012 after having attended a Maritime Seminar at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich which was being organised by the Guild and was open/as always to non-members. Thomas Edward Teear was the catalyst for my actions. Having found out about him in my own Family History research, that he was involved in a devastating attack in the North See during WWI involving a convoy of Merchant ships, HMS Mary Rose https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Mary_Rose and HMS Strongbow https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Strongbow_(1916) and two German light cruisers SS Bremse and Brummer.

Finding there was little on the web about this, at the time. I was contacted by a lady in Canada Kristen Den Hartog (an author, who was doing some research for a new book she was working on as her grandmother’s brother was one of only 10 men who had survived the attack). So we joined forces and together with her sister Tracy Den Hartog Kasaboski, started to research the story and whole crew of HMS Mary Rose in order to find out as much as we could and make connections with Living family. This resulted in masses of data being collected and many contacts who were also interested in the story of HMS Mary Rose. In 2013 Kristen, Tracy and I met up at the National Archives in Kew, London to look at some official records in relation to the attack on the convoy.

I wanted to do ‘Something’ to remember the events of the 17th October 2017 in my own way and pay my respects to ALL the men who died in, yet another tragic event of war.

For this reason, I started the HMS Mary Rose WW1 100th Anniversary project.

‘In Remembrance’ of their courage & ultimate sacrifice and will include information, stories and photo’s, on the immediate family of the crew members, links to the story, links to related websites and other projects (including the initiative by the Imperial War Museum ‘Livesofthefirstworldwar’)
