The Prince of Wales Sea Training School WW2 Memorial Plaque
 
This section of the forum is now open to the public and will compliment our existing PWSTS WW2 Memorial page on the main site dedicated to the 85 Prince of Wales boys who gave their lives in the service of their country between 1939 -1946:

Between 1920 and 1975 a total of 4911 boys were trained at the PWSTS. As such the number of young men killed is signification considering that the school had only been open for 19 years. Although we do not know the exact numbers for that period we would suspect that the total would be around 700 or so.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.

The 85 Prince of Wales boys who gave their lives in the service of their country 1939 -1946.

The PWSTS WW2 Memorial Plaque Service of Remembrance was held at the Holy Trinity church Ingham at 11:00 hrs on Sunday 20th May 2007. Thank you to everyone who lives at Ingham village for welcoming the PWSTS back home and making the day one to always remember.

For the last two years I have been transcribing of the Deaths at Sea Register 1939-1945 recording the names of all the Merchant Seamen who died during the war years who did not qualify for war grave status due to the circumstances of their deaths. As of today it is completed and is ready to be handed over to the relevant authorities in the hope of some formal recognition be granted.

Of the 4,716 pages I had to read through, I have compiled the names of 5,370 Merchant Seamen who have been forgotten.

I was hoping the last four names  from the PWSTS memorial would be amongst them, but unfortunately for now they still remain elusive.

They are:

Robert A. Bowman
John S. Bruce
David McRae
John Moir
