HMS REDMILL

 
TOM FRASER..   My Uncle (Stoker 1st Class C/KX 117336 Tom Fraser, my Dadís brother), served on Captain Class Frigate HMS Redmill as a Stoker (Engineer) from November 1943 until April 1945, after being transferred from HMS Resolution when the latter was mothballed in summer 1943. During Autumn 1943 he was retraining to operate Diesel electric engines at Eastbourne college. I recently discovered the collection of 88 well-written wartime letters he wrote to his family at home in Burnley, Lancs. Many were written from the Redmill. He was killed on April 27th 1945, exactly a month before his 25th birthday and 10 days before the end of hostilities in Europe, when the Redmill was torpedoed in the Atlantic. I aim to annotate the letters and publish them as a book. If you have any memories of my uncle Tom, please get in touch.  Contact Here
