MESSAGES

HMS STARFISH

FRANK LEECH... My Great Uncle Frank Leech born in 1914 and originally from Liverpool joined the Royal Navy in 1932 and followed his brother (George William Leech) into the submarine service in 1935. He served on a variety of submarines including HMS Olympus and HMS Starfish. In 1944 he rejoined the surface fleet serving for a short time on the destroyer HMS Wizard prior to his demobilisation. Mr Leech said: "Every time I wear this medal I shall think of all those submariners who went down, particularly those onboard HMS Olympus, which was carrying survivors from three other submarines when she hit a mine."
