Request for Information
I am writing a paper on the Freshwater West Disaster of April 1943. It would be very helpful to obtain
the names of the Captain and Senior Officers of the Sloop HMS Rosemary, which was sent to the aid
of two stricken Landing Craft. Six sailors from Rosemary lost their lives in the attempted rescue. I
have extensive information of the Landing Craft and men lost, but not of the officers and crew of the
Rosemary Can you help?
