Hi everyone I am trying to find out a little bit more about my Grand Uncle: Thomas, John Colin (22) Pte 1 Base Ordnance Depot RAOC 7594156*. We had always assumed he had died at Dunkirk but recently discovered he went down with the Lancastria on 17th June, 1940. I am now trying to look into a little bit more detail as to what his unit was up to. How he found himself there? If there are any known survivor accounts from people who might have been part of his unit? I would be grateful for really information that can be found or insights on where best to look. I must admit, I was not familiar with the Lancastria at all until I got curious as to how my Grand Uncle actually died. Following his death, his younger sister (my grandma) ran away from home to support during the Battle of Britain and ultimately met my grandfather. Thank you!
