> Hi list,
My wife`s grandfather did his first naval training on "REVENGE" and
SWIFTSURE" in early 1905. Would they have been shore training
establishments? and if so where would they have been. The man concerned
was Henry RACKLEY who lived in Brixham and signed on for the R.N.V.R. He
later served on "Dartmouth" and "Europa" from which he was taken to hospital
in Malta in July 1915 where he died of fever. Would anyone have info on
these ships and their fates. Thanking you all in advance
