Thanks for your reply about my Dad 'William Grogan'
As you undoubtably know Grogan is a very popular name and
as far as I know we have had no relatives in Canada Sorry.
As for HMS Gloucester It is a very good and sad story. Lucky for my dad he was not on board the day it was sunk but all his documents were. My poor mum received a 'missing in action' telegram from the war dep:t. I cannot imagine the the shock when quite a while later he came walking down the street as if nothing had happened.. It was a different time from today were information is instant and in your face.
thanks for the reply.....(wread up on the Gloucester is was quite a story)
