Naval Historians, Crew & Family Noticeboard

WILL F WHELPDALE...  I have been researching to do a family free on the Whelpdales and I have in my possession a copy of a letter sent by my Uncle Will F. Whelpdale, dated January 3l, 1916 from aboard the H.M.S. Euryalus, in it he states: "We have left Malta and we are at another place more further east and we shall not be coming home for a few months at least, as we have got
operations to do here now."I have another letter dated May 5, 1918 from aboard the H.M.S. Tuberose, he writes:  "Well Dear Mother we are having very nice weather out here, but it is a bit hot, and we are pretty busy out here as we have plenty of running to
do, as I expect we shall until this war is over, but we might be coming home later on for a refit, as we expect too within a few months."  I have tried to find information on the H.M.S. Tuberose but cannot find  the ship listed, would appreciate any information. Thank you,  Shirley Mesheau            contact here  

-->  HMS Tuberose is an Anchusa Class Convoy Sloop launched in 1917 and sold in 1923.  It is featured on this page of our site :  Click Here
