If this forum cannot help I don't know who can... Guy Colquhoun RICHARDSON, born 8 September 1921. Silver Medal at 1948 Olympics. RNVR (A) January 1941 No 1 Observer School, HMS Goshawk, Trinidad 1941- Feb 1942 Midshipman (A) Temp Sub-Lt (A) (O) 08 Sept 1942 (Navy List Feb 1944 refers) June 1942-March 1945: 769 Sqn HMS Peewit 850 Sqn 832 Sqn West Indies, Atlantic, North Sea, Pacific, Indian Ocean, Timor Sea HMS Victorious USS Saratoga HMS Illustrious HMS Begum I am in touch with his family but they have had no joy in reponse to their request for his service record. The big question I have is that on a letter he wrote on 14 December 1941 the recipient has pencilled “Guy R in Trinidad, on return from which he was torpedoed, lost all kit, & was rescued from an open boat.” Can anyone help track down this sinking? If anyone could help me with more information about his squadron service I'd be most grateful. (I have lots in general terms about Victorious, Saratoga, & Begum).
