Updates in 2019 (most recent at the top)

Updates in previous years

2019 Mar 16th
A number of entries in the Lost @ Sea Book of Remembrance were previously very sparse but thanks to extensive research by Peter Sharpe, sometime Enquiries & Research Officer of the Merchant Navy Association, many are now clarified.He has also been able to confirm that the bodies of Hopper and Horswell, both lost in the 1939 Liverpool Pilot Boat disaster, were recovered and buried ashore. They are therefore no longer recorded in the Lost At Sea Book of Remembrance.
