WILLIAM SIMPSON

I work as a carer at the William Simpson Home, Plean near Stirling. There is a pub in Plean known as the "Billy". My Grandfather said it was called this after a ship  the Billy Ruffian. I have now found this to be true. The home where I work is a former sailor's home, which was started by William's dad in memory of him. My question to you, is there any way to find out if William Simpson served aboard HMS Bellerophon.

JOSEPH O'CONNOR. I am a nephew of the late Joseph O'Connor who served on HMS Bellerophon as a radio / Communications Person. I think during the Battle of Jutland. He survived that but as a child I remember him telling me some harrowing stories about the dreadful fighting there. I would like some help getting details of his naval service and confirmation of his service on the Bellerophon. he died about 30 years ago. but he had an adopted daughter Delia Hatch who married a US Naval person. I would love to get back in touch with Delia and her family. if you can help. contact. Frank mason at mfmason@eircom.net
