Letter: City men on HMS Barham
This letter sent to the Star was written by Andrea Billard, [email protected]
My great uncle, Frank Osborne died aged 22 on the HMS Barham which was torpedoed by a German U-boat in November 1941.
The sinking became infamous due to the last witchcraft trial in England of Helen Duncan.
I was wondering if any Star readers remember anything about the disaster?
I have tried to find out how many of the men were from Sheffield and have a few names so far but The National Archives are closed so my research has been limited.
I would love to hear from readers with information, [email protected]
