HMS Rosemary

Royal Navy did not have the information requested.

Dear Royal Navy,
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?

Yours faithfully,

John White
(My late father served on the Rosemary)
