Yesterday, at our school Founder' s Day lunch I got chatting to a very pleasant old boy who was at school at the end of the Second World War. In the course of our conversation he mentioned that one of his contemporaries had died in a training accident involving a submarine escape apparatus.He remembered that he was called Cudworth but could not recall exactly when he had died. I checked CWGC to no avail-no naval Cudworth of the right age. But on searching the roll of the Armed Forces Memorial, lo and behold I came across Lt Cdr Ralph Cudworth who died in September 1966 aged 39 while attached to HMS Dolphin, the home of submarine training at Gosport. Unfortunately I can find no other details about him. Would anyone have access to further information about the circumstances of this officer's death or whether he had a connection to Bury in Lancashire?
