On the 11th November is Remembrance Sunday, a day we should all reflect and look back on.
On that SPECIAL day I am going to publish here on this blog the story of ‘James Edward Plaskett’ (1st cousin 3x removed) and the tragic tale of mutiny and disaster that was HMS FIDELITY. a 2,456 ton special service vessel which was sunk by U-435 on New Years Eve 1943 in the icy cold Atlantic Ocean. The disaster took with it 379 people of which only 10 people survived. James Edward Plaskett was 23 years old.
When researching your family history, it’s only a matter of time before you discover a war hero, or tragic stories of loss and disaster… If anyone has story to share, please, please do… I would love to hear them and include them here on my blog.
