HMS RHYL # 6

I discovered the press cutting above on the Internet quite by chance. It is from Portsmouth Dockyard’s web site.

Regarding the names carved inside the ship’s bell, Ms Helen Windus of Rhyl town council staff has examined the bell and reports that there are 15 names engraved inside. They appear to be as follows:

17.6.72 - Duncan Simon Williams
17.6.72 - Mark Shaun Herbert
17.6.72 - Sarah Kifton
17.6.72 - Steven John McManus
17.6.72 - Fiona Cooper
17.6.72 - Sandra Diane Cantrill
5.11.72 - Ian John Milton
12.11.72 - Sheraton Melissa Melanie Tait
5.6.76 - Patrick William Henry Brice
25.8.76 - Delwyn Barker
16.12.76 - Joy Claire Boyall
9.7.78 - Kristien John Watts
no year - Thomas Matthew Bradby
21 or 27.3.81 - Adam James Gold
20.4.86 - Gemma Louise Williams

On behalf of the sons and daughters of sea dogs, thank you Helen!
