This site, has links for those connected with HMS Glorious, HMS Ardent & HMS Acasta. These three ships were lost in action on 8th June, 1940, with the loss of over 1,500 lives.
I have collated some information that I have received about some interesting communications from June 1940 and I have placed it on the pages titled "Document from the Past"
on this site.
If you have any queries or information you wish to send, please e-mail me on this site and I will try to deal with them as I get them.
Many thanks, Graeme Sandford (grandson of Victor Vincent McCullen (HMS Acasta)PHOTO REQUEST
