Anyone ever been told any personal memories of the Battle of the Atlantic?For instance,talking to an elderly neighbour a few years ago,he told me he had served right through the war in the Merchant Navy and on one trip to New York he decided to buy a suit etc. for his forthcoming wedding only for his ship to be torpedoed on the journey back to Liverpool and all his new clothes ending up on the bottom of the Atlantic.
