Donation from HMS Urge Families Group

Francis Dickinson and the HMS Urge Families Group have donated to the appeal in memory of Lieutenant-Commander EP Tomkinson DSO RN and the ship’s company and passengers of HMS Urge, who were lost to enemy action in World War Two.

As background, when HMS Urge was lost after leaving Malta for Alexandria in April, 1942, all 32 crew members, 11 RN passengers and one civilian passenger died. One officer had earlier died on a special operation carried out by HMS Urge in 1941.
